Primary Eye Care Services are the first access at community level. In India we have the need to provide services to a finite population with permanent commitment to the community with appropriate infrastructure and trained human resources drawn from local sources. By improving the eye health seeking behavior in the communities and providing eye care facilities through vision centers at accessible locations, people who require services the most can access them on affordable and equitable basis.
To full fill the need of services, ophthalmic personnel should have clear understanding of primary eye care services. VISION 2020 INDIA organized a refresher training programme on “Standardizing Primary Eye Care Services (SPECS)” on 16 & 17 November 2018 at Dr Shroff’s Charity Eye Hospital, Delhi.
Forty-five delegates from 13 organizations across 5 states participated in the programme. Professionals/personnel involved in primary eye care services, benefitted from the programme
