The main objective of the “Bringing Sight to Armenian Eyes” program is to make the quality eye care accessible to population in all the regions of Armenia which will help to prevent avoidable blindness in the country. Within the scope of the project the AECP Medical teams and the state-of-the-art Mobile Eye Hospital (MEH) travel to rural and urban communities throughout Armenia to render the following services:
- General screening of children and adults
- Refraction for all and provision of eyeglasses to the socially vulnerable population
- On the Mobile Eye Hospital - detailed eye examination and laser treatment for all as well as surgery for vulnerable population.
For timely prevention and treatment of eye diseases, special emphasis is placed on detection of diseases leading to blindness such as cataract, glaucoma, diabetic retinopathy, macular degeneration etc.After general screening the patients get referrals to the MEH for detailed examination, laser treatment or surgery as needed. To secure more accessibility, the MEH is stationed in all central cities and towns of Armenia.
Our mission is eliminating
preventable blindness and
making eye care accessible to
all people in Armenia.
