HIS GIFT OF SIGHT SOCIAL CLINIC
Ash Eye Institute has created a socially-conscious ophthalmic clinical and surgical Institute of excellence where Bahamians regardless of their socioeconomic class can receive timely and excellent comprehensive ophthalmic care. This Ophthalmic Center of Excellence -the only one of its kind in the region- offers world renowned ophthalmic surgeons to the people of the Bahamas.
His Gift of Sight's clinic is currently located in Freeport and Nassau and aims to eradicate preventable blindness in the Bahamas through love and service. This socially-conscious clinic currently offers various vision screenings, diagnostic testing, management, treatment and surgeries within the Bahamas.
WHAT IS "HIS GIFT OF SIGHT"?
HGOS is a sustainable, socially-conscious ophthalmic clinic offered by Ash Eye Institute. It affords Bahamians, of every socioeconomic class, the opportunity to receive timely ophthalmic care from world renowned ophthalmologists.
WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO BE 'SOCIALLY CONSCIOUS'?
Socially-conscious literally means "being my brother's keeper". The objective of HGOS is to offer clinical and surgical ophthalmic care at minimal cost to those who otherwise would not be able to afford the usual cost of quality eye care.
This is made possible by allowing the private arm of Ash Eye Institute to support the social arm (HGOS).
PRIVATE PATIENTS VS. SOCIAL PATIENTS
HGOS offers clinical and surgical eye care to the people of the Bahamas through the donations of medical equipment and supplies, as well as, the financial support of private-paying patients of Ash Eye Institute.
Candidates are approved for social clinic surgery after completion of a screening process at one of our Ash Eye Institute locations.
HOW TO BECOME A SURGICAL CANDIDATE
Make an appointment to have your eyes examined at one of our Ash Eye Institute locations in Nassau or Freeport.
After your examination and screening, you will be given a 'Things To Do' checklist, which must be completed before surgery (i.e. medical clearance, payments etc.)
