the right to sight
In the big picture, training new Eye Care Professionals is by far the most important thing we do! Surgeons cannot learn without patients, and they can get a lot of experience at the Eye Centre. The photos below show some of the new generation of eye surgeons learning new skills!
the school screening and awareness program
The school screening and awareness program is sponsored by someone who wishes to remain anonymous. The program started 6 years ago. As well as screening children's eyes, we also teach the children about eye health, how to identify someone who may have an eye problem, and what to do. It works really well as the children are so keen to learn. They are the first generation to go to school, so are looked up to. The children bring a lot of patients to the Eye Centre!
screening in the community
Screening in various locations allows us to continue to break down the barriers which prevent people reaching eye care.
