Humanitarian Initiatives

Be compassionate.

Perform without boundaries.

New World Medical’s mission is to preserve and enhance vision by delivering innovations to all of humanity. This can only be achieved in partnership with eye care professionals dedicated to alleviating the burden of blindness globally. As a result, we contribute more than 10% of our profits each year to support enhanced screening and surgical skills transfer from highly trained providers to local peers in developing health care systems.
