Maldor Gift of Sight programme is a Nigerian-based eyecare facility committed to providing affordable and quality eyecare services. The programme provides quality eyecare and support to patients in low-income and rural settings. The innovation addresses the prevention of avoidable blindness and rehabilitation for low-vision patients through access to basic eyecare. Through the Gift of Sight Eyeclinic on Wheels model, the goal is to reach over 100,000 patients in the next 3 to 5 years using this innovative approach. Through this innovation, eyecare services, treatment, management, support and rehabilitation can reach even the remotest villages. The solution can reach and monitor eyecare in remote communities by scheduling clinic days to meet people where they are in a convenient, time saving and cost saving manner. The innovation will offer low-cost prescription eye glasses, medication and low-vision aids that solve problems such as poor sight and eye diseases. The solution will also serve patients who have lost their eyes through cancer and ocular accidents by fitting them with prosthetic eyes to help build their self-confidence.
