Noor Dubai

The World Health Organization (WHO) releases regular statistics about blindness and eye diseases at a global scale. According to this data, the number of affected people rises at an alarming rate every year. In fact, one person in the world goes blind every 5 seconds.

In response to these alarming statistics, His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President, Prime Minister of the United Arab Emirates and Ruler of Dubai launched the "Noor Dubai Initiative" on September 3, 2008. Noor Dubai started as an international charitable initiative for the prevention and treatment of blindness and low vision.

Noor Dubai was launched with the vision of a world free from avoidable causes of blindness. It provides therapeutic, preventative and educational programs to treat and prevent blindness and visual impairment in developing countries on a regional and international scale.

Following the success achieved of reaching out to over 5.8 million individuals worldwide in its first year, a decree was passed by His Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, launching the Noor Dubai Foundation a non-governmental, non-for-profit organization, aiming to eliminate all forms of preventable blindness globally.

In 2017, the Foundation was awarded 3 ISO certifications including: ISO 9001: 2015- Quality Management Systems, ISO 22301:2012 - Business Continuity and ISO 26000- Social Responsibility, becoming one of the first specialized charities to receive 3 ISO certificates in the MENA region.

Noor Dubai’s Guiding Principles
Noor Dubai Foundation envisions a world where all individuals living in low income regions and suffering from visual disabilities have access to eye healthcare and are given equal and fair opportunities of treatment that will improve their quality of life.

Rivoli EyeZone resonates the same principals as Opticians who care for your eyes. That is the reason why we have been collaborating with Noor Dubai on many vision screenings programs in UAE and various other joint initiatives.
