Project Vision Hawai`i is a non-profit organization that aims to achieve better access to healthcare for Hawai‘i’s people. It provides health screenings and education with a focus on vision health.
The organization’s four mobile screening units travel to communities statewide and serve as vehicles to better health. These mobile units are equipped with digital imaging equipment that take high-quality photos of the inside of the eye in less than 10 minutes. Using these photos, ophthalmologists can review the images to detect eye conditions like cataracts, diabetic retinopathy, glaucoma, and macular degeneration. In schools and the community, PVH provides vision screening for our children using state-of-the-art technology and is working with state agencies to create a statewide screening program.
Project Vision Hawai`i is proud to introduce our newest program: Hiehie, a free mobile hygiene unit located on both the Big Island and O`ahu. Click the link below to learn more about this service and how you can get involved.
