4. Low Vision Clinic
Low vision is a condition whereby the eyesight is reduced to an extent that a person is considered handicapped and not yet blind. With appropriate support the person can use the vision for execution of the visual tasks.
The unit works in close collaboration with Ministry of Education in Kenya, and Ministry of Health, Division of Ophthalmic Service [DOS].
Aim Of The Department
The general aim of the department is to ensure that children with low vision get opportunity to use their vision in the most effective way, so that they may live as independent as possible in the world of the sighted.
Objectives Of The Department
The child has delayed milestone, [delay in walking e.t.c.] so she is being taken through exercise to help her in balancing by the Rehab officer [Early Intervention]. Low vision looks at the child as a whole, and not just the eyes only.
PCEA Kikuyu Hospital offers opportunities to Medical Students who would like to work on voluntary basis in the Hospital.
