Jason Singh, OD
Class of 1998

Dr. Jason Singh’s passion for social impact through vision care began after he graduated from The Ohio State University in 1998. After graduation, his journey took him to Cincinnati where he worked for the Cincinnati Eye Institute and opened his private practice that focused on pediatrics, urgent care, and ocular disease management. During this time, Dr. Singh began participating in global missions work, and this passion to use his skills to change lives around the world ultimately led him to a life-changing decision.

Dr. Singh sold everything and moved to Mamelodi, South Africa to serve as Executive Medical Director for Engage Mamelodi, a program designed to bring sustainable medical care to the underserved people in this post-apartheid township. In this role, his team created programs for vision care, dental care, and community health care. This is where the world vision care crisis became blatantly apparent to him, a problem that could not be overlooked.

Upon returning from Mamelodi, Jason became the Executive Director of OneSight, a nonprofit organization dedicated to solving the global vision care crisis by providing access to quality vision care and eyewear to those in need around the world. He is responsible for leading all OneSight global and regional programs, including operations, fundraising, and communications. During his current tenure, OneSight has served 750,000 people in underprivileged communities around the world, while piloting new sustainable vision care infrastructure for millions more in need.

Jason currently lives in a suburb of Cincinnati with his wife Amanda and new son, Joshua.
