Project Vision Hawai`i, in association with WE...a hui for health, 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 three mobile screening units travel to communities statewide and serve as vehicles to better health. These mobile units are equipped with digital imaging equipment that takes high-quality photos of the inside of the eye in less than 10 minutes. Using these photos, ophthalmologists who review the images can detect eye conditions like diabetic retinopathy, macular degeneration, glaucoma, and cataracts. 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.
