PCEA KIKUYU HOSPITAL EYE UNIT
The Eye Unit was established in 1975 as part of a collaborative effort between the hospital and Christoffel Bliden Mission (CBM), a German non-governmental organization (NGO).
In 1989 a new eye ward and theatre block were added, funded by CBM and EZE, that are charitable German organizations.
Later additions include two examination rooms, optical workshop, eye drop production unit, offices and a student hostel.The Kikuyu Eye Unit is the eye centre for Nairobi and a Referral centre for East African Region.
Over the years, the hospital has grown to its present status, with its patient roll getting longer than ever. It has reached a point where it handles between 70-80,000 patients a year.
Such has been the scope of the units work and importance to the entire hospitals operation that PCEA Kikuyu is generally acknowledged as an Eye hospital. This is due to the brand pull of the Eye Unit and the work it has done and the recognition achieved over the years, sometimes at great odds. Even then, there is still a vague awareness in some quarters about the entire range of services at this clinic and the rest of the hospital as a whole.
It is the only unit in Kenya which has a Low Vision Department.
