PRIMARY EYE CARE CENTRES

VISION CENTRE PROGRAMME


Making Primary Eye Care Accessible Vision Centres


Vision centres play a vital role in making affordable Eye Care services accessible. Creating a system were early interception could be made reachable required a static body that could act as a contact centre to provide primary eye care consultation, and bring formal and informal stakeholders, community change agents, local actions groups and duty bearers to take an active role in intercepting the persons and bring them to eye care early. The centres also act as a contact to sensitize, train and engage people who may further replicate the process to end ignorance towards avoidable blindness and bring people to treatment before it is too late.


SGLEH today has 18 Vision centres spread across a region of 400 km to intercept the patient and provide treatment earliest possible. Once intercepted if required the vision centre act as a referral station to the hospital where the patient receives specialized eye care at subsidized rates.


The Outreach programme especially targets to bring women to health care. Through various door-to-door sensitization measures, workshops with women-only groups and including men to sensitize them to take equal onus and participation in bringing the woman to health care. SGLEH has been able to create a safe space for women and help her become independent on her own to seek eye care. SGLEH believes once a woman is aware she can play a greater role in creating an aware space for the children and other family members, inculcate healthy habits and ensure better health and hygiene for the family.
