Vision Care Opticians and Vision Care Appasamy Eye Hospital are proudly Zambian owned entities. Vision Care has worked within the communities in Zambia over the past thirteen years and has roughly estimated that more than three million people are in need of eye care, and majority of them are unaware of their eye conditions.
Vision Care Opticians has over the years developed a simple and cost effective technology and the capacity to solve this problem by enabling its operations by ensuring that the full supply chain of optical industry is made available to the Zambian communities. Vision Care boasts a large network of 14 optical stores across various locations in Zambia along with a full-fledged state of the art Optical Lab ensuring that we cover a complete supply chain of the optical industry making our customer’s eye care provision quicker, efficient and effective.
Whilst the optical lab is first of its kind in the country which manufactures ophthalmic lenses to a specified prescription at an affordable rate, and despite the availability of these facilities in Zambia, the eye care problems continue to persist on a vast scale. For the poor, eyeglasses often are either inaccessible or unaffordable, forcing thousands of people in resource poor peri–urban and rural areas to live below their full potential. We have developed a mechanism where we partner with other sectors wherein we undertake free community eye screenings in various churches, schools, and corporate companies in order to educate the communities about the eye care and provide appropriate insights.
