The Eye Health Institute (EHI) is a non-profit based in Boulder Colorado. We work with volunteers to provide in-depth eye care to the underserved people of Jamaica.
Since we began, formally as EHI, in 2001 we’ve:
• Seen over 8,000 people.
• Provided more than 4,000 pairs of glasses.
• Performed more than 100 sight restoring operations; including Cataract surgery, Pterygium removal and Corneal transplants.
All free of charge.
It is estimated that half of the population of Jamaica will not receive vision care in their lifetime.
The Eye Health Institute would like to change that.
We have some exciting new news about our partnership with the University of Michigan and their program the Third Century Initiative. Check it out here!
