Community Vision Group Integrated Child Eye Health programme

This initiative seeks to establish a school eye health programme as a sustainable model to deliver eye health services to children. We approach this initiative holistically by (1) conducting routine eye screening tests of all pupils and students in their schools for detection of uncorrected refractive error (2) carrying out eye health assessments on each child using the pen torch. Simple eye conditions (allergic and bacteria conjunctivitis) are treated on the spot and (3) capacity building for child eye care especially for teachers.
