In the provinces of Dong Thap, Binh Duong, Ca Mau and Soc Trang, the Eye Care Foundation works in collaboration with district and provincial hospitals to provide Vision Centres. These Vision Centres are affiliated with the hospitals. The Vision Centres expand eye care services in hospitals and contribute to the support of ophthalmologists in order to improve quality. This project started in 2014. All of these Vision Centres have arranged that people who normally cannot afford glasses, can receive a free pair of glasses or glasses with discount.
The activities of the Vision Centres are:
- Testing of visual ability of eyes
- Providing more extensive eye testing
- Deliver prescription eyewear
- Carrying out eye tests in schools and with the elderly
