OMEGA's ongoing support for Orbis

OMEGA is a proud supporter of Orbis International. The compelling 48 minute documentary 'The Hospital in the Sky' follows the visit of Cindy Crawford and her daughter to the Flying Eye Hospital in Peru.

A CAMPAIGN WITH CUDDLES

Cindy Crawford, Nicole Kidman, Zhang Ziyi, Sergio Garcia, Michael Phelps and Chad le Clos enjoy a photo opportunity with Teddy: a playful way for OMEGA's brand ambassadors to raise the flag for Orbis International and their fight against preventable blindness.

HOLD ON TIGHT

OMEGA understands that going to the hospital can be scary so we supply Orbis International with cuddly teddy bears for each of its young patients. They comfort the children and their families and help the surgeons explain the treatment to the patients. Following the treatment, the teddy bear will have a matching eye patch.

Old friends. Shared goals.

It takes time and resilience to change the world. But with the right people on your side, you can achieve great things. OMEGA has been a proud supporter of Orbis International since 2012 and will continue to stand behind this extraordinary organisation for as long as it takes. Wherever the Flying Eye Hospital goes next, OMEGA will follow. After all, that's what friends are for.

A STAR IN PERU

Long-time OMEGA ambassador Cindy Crawford and her daughter visited the Orbis International team in Peru. They met the healthcare professionals and the young patients whose lives – and those of their families – were changed with treatments that restored their vision.

"At the local airport the baggage handlers await a unique visitor. An aircraft unlike any other in the world. An aircraft that can perform miracles. The Flying Eye Hospital can perform miracles."

A LIFE-CHANGING CONTRIBUTION

Four special watches have been created to celebrate OMEGA’s partnership with Orbis International. OMEGA donates a portion of the proceeds from each of these striking timepieces to Orbis International and its Flying Eye Hospital.

ORBIS IN MONGOLIA

In 2011, brand ambassador Daniel Craig and OMEGA joined Orbis in Mongolia to witness first-hand the work that the dedicated volunteers and eye care professionals were doing. His experience was captured in the documentary Through Their Eyes.
