Final Accumulated Leaderboard



Inspired by the virtual Orbis Flying Eye Hospital and Cybersight, our first Race4Sight event last year was a huge success thanks to the generous donors and enthusiastic participants. We were thrilled to welcome nearly 1,000 racers across the world, including 600+ employees from 9 corporate sponsors and 300+ attendees from the general public.

Race4Sight 2022 is a virtual event for all to celebrate Orbis's 40 years of saving sight worldwide and open to both corporate employees and public participants to race ANYWHERE and ANYTIME. It also enlarges inclusivity by offering those who are not running or cycling a chance to do something creative on social media so they too can let their talents shine while raising awareness of eyecare across the world.

Celebrating Orbis's 40 Years of Innovation

It was March 1, 1982, when our iconic Flying Eye Hospital took off on its first ever sight-saving project, which all started with the dream of Dr David Paton, an ophthalmologist from Houston, to reach and treat avoidable blindness. Over the four decades since, we have continually harnessed the power of innovation to reach new heights in the fight against avoidable blindness.

Through innovations like our Flying Eye Hospital projects, dedicated country programs and Cybersight, we have been able to ensure a brighter tomorrow for millions and change lives in places where quality eye care is more difficult to access. Our capacity-building programs have enhanced the skills of 325,000 eyecare personnel and provided medical and optical treatment to more than 23.3 million people in 92 countries.

Facts About Myopia in Singapore

Singapore is the Myopia Capital of the World and by 2050, it is projected that 80 to 90 percent of all Singapore adults above 18 years old will be myopic. High myopia puts one at risk of many eye disorders later in life.

There is an urgency to raise awareness amongst school students and the communities in Singapore on the importance of taking care of their eyesight, spending time outdoors, less time on screens and avoiding a sedentary lifestyle.

We have been in discussion with other local eyecare organisations to resume our blindfold activities and talks in schools and the community, organise eye screening and invite our visually impaired ambassadors to share their stories.

You are invited to be part of the solution and help Orbis to raise awareness of myopia in your communities.
