Vision Stations fill an important need in underserved communities here
in the United States.
VISION STATION PROJECT
To meet the needs of underserved communities, InFOCUS developed a user-friendly
path to vision care, the Vision Station.
InFOCUS offers "Introduction to Primary Eye Care" workshops and step-by-step
guidelines to prepare community-based service providers to assess vision,
provide eye health education, refer patients to eye doctors and - if
eyeglasses are prescribed - dispense glasses from a small, on-site dispensary.
Stations can be set up in a church, community center,
clinic, school, youth program or any place where
low-income families come for activities, assistance
and services. See more information on Vision
