Do you take patients from the UAE (locals or non-locals)?

Noor Dubai has programs abroad and within the UAE but we do not take individual cases within the country. We currently have an awareness campaign running and not a treatment campaign.

UAE citizens are treated for free at government hospitals in Dubai and the Northern Emirates. They do not need assistance from Noor Dubai.

Non-local residents will need to make an appointment at their closest government or private hospital in their emirate of residence. Noor Dubai does not offer discounts/financial assistance for eye care within the country.

Does Noor Dubai give cash to help those in need of ocular operations and /or procedures?

No, Noor Dubai does not offer cash imbursements for medical procedures of any kind.

(I/Someone I know) have/has an ocular disease, how can Noor Dubai help?

If the person is in a country that we have announced a mobile camp in, then they should be directed to the camp site during our visit. If the patient is not in a country we are visiting then Noor Dubai, unfortunately, cannot help them at this time.

What is the minimum I can donate to be able to help?

$8 US provides treatment to one person in our mobile eye camp

$4 US provides one person with eye glasses made specifically for our mobile eye camp
