FOLLOWING the recent Rotary-SEGi Eye Centre launch at SEGi University Kota Damansara, the institution’s Faculty of Optometry and Vision Sciences hosted a Mini Vision Clinic for children between the ages of 7 and 17.
The school children were elated as they were brought into the clinic for an eye screening, guided and supervised by qualified optometrists and SEGi optometry students.
The event was aimed at providing free vision screening and spectacles to 80 pupils. It was in line with the objective of the Rotary-SEGi Eye Centre – to provide eye examination to those who are unable to have access to eye care services due to financial constraints.
This event was held in collaboration with OneSight and Luxottica. Also present were the Managing Director of Luxottica South East Asia, Claus Skadjaer, the Dean of Faculty of Optometry and Vision Sciences at SEGi University, Prof Dr Azrin Esmady Ariffin, representatives from the Rotary Club, Luxottica Malaysia, as well as optometry students.
The Faculty of Optometry and Vision Sciences offers the Bachelor of Optometry (Hons) to those who would like to pursue a career in the eye care industry. The programme is fully accredited by the Malaysian Qualifications Agency (MQA). For details, visit: https://segiuniversity.edu.my/faculty-of-optometry-vision-sciences/
