The AECP has launched its “Protect the Eyes of Those Who Protect the Motherland” campaign, which will provide Armenia’s soldiers with protective eyewear in an effort to prevent soldiers from sustaining serious eye injuries or going blind.

Haykaz Grigoryan, 23, is one of nine Armenian soldiers who has received prosthetic eye surgery after sustaining injuries from the 2020 war with Azerbaijan.

Our mission to make eye care accessible to every resident in Armenia continues as we develop additional eye care facilities across all regions of the country.

Last summer, in July 2021, the Armenian EyeCare Project received a three-year grant from USAID to enhance pediatric eye health services in Armenia. Here is what we’ve accomplished in one year.

After a two-year hiatus due to the Coronavirus, we are happy to announce that our Next Generation Fellowship Program, which brings promising young doctors from Armenia to the U.S. for advanced medical education and training, has started up again.

The AECP has partnered with French organizations Lumière Française, Assistance Publique–Hôpitaux de Paris and the French Embassy in Armenia to establish an Armenian-French Ophthalmic School in Armenia.

What an incredible achievement! On April 24, 2022,  our very own AECP Founder and President Dr. Roger Ohanesian was awarded with the 2022 Chang-Crandall Humanitarian Award from the ASCRS Foundation.

Two donors who both led modest lives will leave an extraordinary impact on the lives of countless residents in Armenia through their generous bequests to the Armenian EyeCare Project.
