A friendly cooperation with the Retina Fundación Paraguay gradually developed into a permanent partnership, which has been providing good vision under the program name Lentes al Instante (Paraguay) since 2023.
vision tests carried out
The Retina Fundación has been working since 2018 to improve basic eye care in Paraguay. The ophthalmologists at the non-profit organization can identify many diseases using retinal photographs offered free of charge. For patients who can be helped with a simple pair of glasses, there was previously no service available.
Following initial joint training sessions, our employees from Bolivia and their colleagues from the Retina Foundation have closed this gap with over 750 pairs of fitted OneDollarGlasses. Dra. Andrea Oleñik is in charge of the project.
