Sponsored mobile eye screening camps enable us to reach remote rural communities and people living in socially and economically deprived urban areas with little access to good quality health care. Through our eye screening programme, we provide free eye checks and eye health awareness, to enable us to provide treatment where needed and also to raise the general level of understanding of the issues around eye health, hygiene and care.
Academic under-performance can be the result of an underlying, undiagnosed eye condition or impaired vision. Our sponsored school eye screening programmes seeks to address this issue, offering free eye checks to school children across the country. Our dedicated teams of ophthalmologists and allied health professionals regularly visit schools in areas that are identified as having poor health care services to test the eyesight of all children, provide free treatment to those who are diagnosed with an eye ailment and raise awareness of eye health amongst children.
Our school screening programmes are designed to educate and train teachers to recognise the signs and symptoms of deteriorating eyesight and eye ailments and refer students to our hospitals and clinics. To date we have trained over 6000 teachers.
Teachers are our strongest allies.
