Our Programs

Key to the success of VHI’s work are partnerships with host communities. We schedule field programs only at the invitation of — and in collaborations with — local leaders, regional or national officials, or eye care or medical professionals.

We plan and implement four to five, week-long service trips each year, for which we recruit dedicated vision care professionals and highly-qualified personnel to volunteer their time, in order to deliver high-quality vision care to the local community. VHI field programs offer the experience of a lifetime. We work with people who have little to no access to eye care and are grateful for the high-quality care we provide.

Upcoming Field Programs


Interested in volunteering to join us on an upcoming trip?

We have a Scholarship program to address the reality that financial considerations often deter, if not preclude, qualified, interested nurses and scrub technicians from participating on VHI field programs.
