Community eye clinics offer a permanent access point for comprehensive primary (nonsurgical) eye care, in an underserviced suburban or semi-urban setting less than one hours drive (30 to 60 kilometres) from a base hospital. The community eye centre model is intended to replace regional eye camps and to manage primary eye care in order to enable the base hospital to focus on secondary and tertiary care.
The main difference between a community eye centre and vision centres (besides its bigger size of about 1000 square feet) is the presence of a full-time ophthalmologist in the former set up. The staff consists of one doctor, five paramedics (2 senior ophthalmic assistants and 3 junior), and one paramedically trained receptionist.
