Through the incorporation of research into the eye care system, the Project is able to further disease prevention and improve health. Eye disease — primarily cataract, glaucoma, and diabetic retinopathy — is a major public health issue in Armenia. Yet, there is no reliable data available on eye and other diseases for the Armenian population. To provide the data that is necessary for designing the most effective health and disease prevention interventions and to design targeted public communication strategies, information is collected during eye screenings on the Mobile Eye Hospital and then analyzed.
