We are a Liberian non- for profit organization with Rotary Club International being our founding partner. Our primary focus is quality eye health care delivery for all. For the past twelve years, we have screened 153,312 persons and performed 8,986 eye surgeries of which cataract constituted 76%, distributed 26,100 distant glasses, reading and sun glasses. Our routine rural eye health care community outreach programs and clinical services have made this possible.
The Center believes that a comprehensive eye health is key to a sustainable health care system, and it is a sure way to create easy access to quality eye health service in rural communities. With Lions Clubs International Foundation funding, we have established 2 secondary eye centers in rural Liberia: Grand Bassa and Nimba Counties for the Government of Liberia. However, the Segal Family Foundation is a driving force behind our sustainability.
The ophthalmic training program is a component of New Sight Eye Center activity founded in 2017. Ministry of Health accredited it through the Liberian Board for Nursing and Midwifery. As part of the accreditation requirement, New Sight Eye Center and the Liberian Board for Nursing and Midwifery identified two African countries, The Gambia and South Africa for benchmarking and best practices on ophthalmic nursing training.
