The Armenian EyeCare Project will be hosting one of its biggest annual events a little differently this year as our organization prepares to go virtual due to the coronavirus.

Mobile Eye Hospital

Our Mobile Eye Hospital has restarted its regular activities in the regions of Armenia following four long months of COVID-19 related restrictions. All necessary precautions are in place to protect both doctors and patients while we provide much-needed eye care services to Armenia’s population.

AECP Board Members

As we look to nearly 30 years of service in Armenia, the AECP is pleased to welcome our four newest board members to our Board of Directors who will help facilitate our success for years to come.

Big hearts come in small packages! Last year, seven-year-old Ziva Bodenschatz received a school assignment: find a way to improve her community and write an official letter to a local agency. She decided that she would like to help people –especially children – see.

AECP Mobile Eye Hospital

Largely considered the hallmark of the AECP, our Mobile Eye Hospital is a surgical suite on wheels that delivers eye care to tens of thousands of Armenians each year who otherwise wouldn’t have access. Here are the stories of three Armenians who recently received sight-saving surgery aboard our mobile clinic.


With recent developments of the COVID-19 pandemic, it has undoubtedly been a trying time for nearly everyone around the world. As always, the health and safety of our community comes first and we are taking the appropriate measures to protect the well-being of our beneficiaries, staff and friends.

Vahan Papoyan

We have begun 2020 with some great news to mark the extra-special year for our organization: the first ophthalmologist from our Next Generation Fellowship Program, Dr. Vahan Papoyan, has arrived in the U.S. from Armenia and is currently completing his medical fellowship at Wills Eye Hospital in Philadelphia.

2019 AECP Gala

Amidst flowing cocktails, a five-course dinner and elegant décor, hundreds of donors and friends of the Armenian EyeCare Project gathered at the beautiful Balboa Bay Resort in Newport Beach to support and celebrate the organization on another momentous year.

AECP school screenings

The Armenian EyeCare Project is pleased to announce that we have officially launched our eye screening program for preschool-aged children thanks to our crowdfunding campaign with Fund for Armenian Relief’s (FAR) Ayo! platform.
