In March 2021 I launched the Tej Kohli & Ruit Foundation to take low-cost cataract surgeries out into poor and remote communities in Nepal, Indonesia, Ethiopia, Tanzania, Myanmar, India, and China. Working with my co-founder Dr. Sanduk Ruit, I hope to cure 300,000 cataracts blindness by 2026.
The prevalence, causes, and impact of blindness are simultaneously well-documented whilst also being poorly understood by the general public. 90% of all blindness occurs in low-income countries, where those who suffer are quite literally ‘out of sight’ from the rest of the world.
