WHAT WE DO
Based in Houston, Texas, the InFOCUS University serves as the hub of global efforts to expand access to vision care. Working with universities, professionals and health organizations, the Center:

  • Provides training, information resources and technical assistance to service providers
  • Promotes awareness of primary eye care needs and program strategies
  • Fosters research on clinical methods and technologies
  • Initiates and participates in collaborative projects; and
  • Develops and implements programs to respond to critically unmet needs. InFOCUS reaches out to people and programs near and far to promote healthy eyes and clear vision for all.
 


Vision Stations fill an important need in underserved communities here in the United States.
 

THE VISION STATION PROJECT
To meet the needs of underserved communities, InFOCUS developed a user-friendly path to vision care, the Vision Station. InFOCUS offers "Vision 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.

Vision 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 Stations.
