該基金會的願景是希望世界上的人若非必要,不須受眼盲之苦,並期盼澳洲原住民能跟其他澳洲人一樣健康和長壽。佛雷德‧哈洛斯基金會受已故的佛雷德‧哈洛斯教授(1929-1993)啟發而成立。佛雷德是一位眼科醫生,也是一位國際知名手術精湛的外科醫師和社會正義的擁護者。他致力於改善澳洲原住民的健康以及降低開發中國家在眼科健保和治療上的費用。該基金會於1992年(佛雷德過世的五個月之前)在澳洲雪梨成立,目標為持續佛雷德在厄立特里亞、越南和澳洲原住民間展開的工作。該基金會對象遍及非洲、亞洲(南亞與東南亞)和澳洲,專注於眼盲防治和澳洲原住民的健康。該基金會在某些開發中國家將白內障手術的費用降低至25美金,已經幫助全球超過一百萬人恢復視力。
 
Our vision is for a world where no one is needlessly blind, and Indigenous Australians enjoy the same health and life expectancy as other Australians.  The Fred Hollows Foundation is inspired by the work of the late Professor Fred Hollows (1929-1993). Fred was an eye doctor, a skilled surgeon of international renown and a social justice activist. Fred was committed to improving the health of Indigenous Australians and to reducing the cost of eye health care and treatment in developing countries. The Foundation was established in Sydney in 1992, five months before Fred passed away, with the aim of continuing and expanding on the program work he had started in Eritrea, Vietnam and Indigenous Australia. The Foundation now works throughout Africa, Asia (South and South East) and Australia, focusing on blindness prevention and Australian Indigenous health. Through reducing the cost of cataract operations to as little as $25 in some developing countries, we have helped to restore the sight of more than 1,000,000 people worldwide.
