The Eye Care Foundation has been working in partnership with the National Ophthalmology Centre in Laos since 1994. The aim of the collaboration is to strengthen leadership and governance in the eye health care sector at national and sub-national levels. This partnership extends to working with Provincial Health Departments and Provincial Hospital Eye Units to improve the quality of eye care services at national, sub-national, and community levels to reach the goal of preventing avoidable blindness and vision impairment.

In 2012, ECF started working with the Lao government on strengthening the eye health care capacity and facilitating surgical eye camps in the three target provinces of Xiengkhouang, Houaphan, and Xaysomboun (the latter suspended at the end of 2019).
