Our stellar list of speakers will be offering insights into topics like the global eye health research agenda, harnessing the power of technology, eye health and indigenous populations and many more.”

The initial speaker line-up includes a Gold Medallist Paralympian turned actor, a UN Ambassador, speakers from the World Health Organisation, economists, and eye health professionals from around the world.

Join me at 2030 IN SIGHT LIVE, where together, we’ll shape a future where eye care is not just a privilege but a fundamental human right. Let’s redefine what’s possible, one vision at a time.”
