OMEGA celebrates World Sight Day with Orbis International


Marking their four year partnership with Orbis International, OMEGA proudly releases “The Hospital in the Sky”, a documentary about Cindy Crawford’s visit to the Flying Eye Hospital in Peru.

October the 8th is recognised across the globe as World Sight Day. On this special occasion, OMEGA is once again highlighting the life-changing work of its partner organisation Orbis International. The optical treatments performed aboard their Flying Eye Hospital are helping to restore vision in some of the planet’s most remote regions. On top of this, they also work tirelessly to train new medical professionals who can help in the fight against blindness.

OMEGA Brand Ambassador Cindy Crawford was able to witness the work of Orbis International first-hand when she visited the Flying Eye Hospital in Trujillo, Peru. Together with her daughter Kaia, Cindy’s eyes were opened to the remarkable efforts of the professionals involved, as well as the bravery of their patients.

Now, OMEGA is officially releasing the story in a 48 minute documentary called “The Hospital in the Sky”.  It is a wonderful account of the many lives touched by Orbis International, narrated by Cindy herself, who gives an emotive insight from her own perspective.

Having already premiered at special screenings worldwide, the public can now see the film online here.
