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.
