Arclight Project

Preventable and treatable blindness and deafness affects more than 1.5 billion people worldwide.

Based in the School of Medicine at the University of St Andrews, the Arclight Project is a social enterprise that enables those working in low resource settings to equip, train and empower health care workers of all grades to confidently diagnose and manage eye and ear disease. Frugal kit and targeted learning ensure users can make on-the-spot decisions themselves.

Profit from sales of our products in higher resource settings along with donations to the Arclight Project go towards funding distribution and training in regions where disease is greatest, yet access to tools and training the least.

You can see how the Arclight Project has already transformed lives in this video: Arclight in India.

If you would like to support the Arclight Project team to expand their work throughout all the poorer regions of the world, please make a donation.  You can also purchase an Arclight from the Arclight Project Shop to create revenue for the social enterprise.

Thank you.
