Direct Patient Care

Direct patient care is provided by U.S. physicians traveling to Armenia twice a year on Medical Missions; at six specialty clinics in Yerevan directed by AECP Fellows — Retina, Glaucoma, Corneal-Uveitis, Neuro-Orbital, Pediatrics and Low Vision; and on a Mobile Eye Hospital that travels country-wide. Delivered to Armenia in 2002, the Mobile Eye Hospital is a 14-ton, state-of-the-art eye clinic on wheels. The 48-foot long, 408 square-foot mobile facility houses an operating room and two examination rooms and provides eye care to thousands of children and adults each year as charitable services at no cost to the Armenian people.
