Our Facilities

Alina Vision’s purpose is to establish and operate a network of financially sustainable eye health facilities, including hospitals and vision centres, across underserved countries in order to: 

  • Provide accessible, affordable and high-quality eye care services for people across all income levels, regardless of ability to pay. 

  • Support the professional development and aspirations of the next generation of eye care leaders.

  • Demonstrate the role of blended finance towards eye care services

 

In 2018, we established our pilot surgery centre in Hung Yen Province, a few kilometres outside the Vietnamese Capital of Hanoi. We now operate the Alina Vision Hospital, along with two vision centres in nearby provinces in Ha Noi (in Gia Lâm district) and Quảng Ninh (Ha Long city).

Alina Vision is currently looking for new markets in Vietnam where the Alina Eye Care Model will fill the market gap and meet patient needs.

Outreach

Alina Vision attracts paying patients by building a reputation as a high-quality eye health service provider, while also offering outreach services to underserved communities. Outreach to potential patients is mainly done through eye camps, screening patients in the community, and working with partners to support patient’s travel to our hospital for treatment. All outreach events involve a high degree of planning and engagement with local communities.

 

Outreach services include:

  • Full eye health checks through screening for operable cataracts, refractive error, intraocular pressure to identify glaucoma, paediatric eye problems, diabetic retinopathy, corneal problems and age-related macular degeneration.

  • Advising patients on surgical options available 

  • Referral of patients for specialty consultation at the base hospital  

  • Training teachers and students on eye care

  • Prescribing glasses

Alina Vision enhances its service delivery through in-house and external trainings.

Alina Vision is focused on elevating the quality of eye-care services in Vietnam. Alina Vision has extensive training pathways on offer, together with an Ophthalmologist engagement and retention strategy designed to increase employee engagement and promote retention of talent.

The benefits of training include:

  • better quality clinical and service outcomes for patients

  • greater efficiency leading to increased patient volume

  • career development pathways  

  • identification of gaps in the eye health workforce

Alina Vision conducts in-house training and equips its ophthalmologist and nurse cadres with standardised tools in both clinical and non-clinical (e.g., patient counselling) competencies.
 
Alina Vision also engages external organisations to provide fellowships and other short-term training support to untrained professionals.

Alina Vision is the next chapter in the eye care revolution our co-founders helped start 25 years ago.
