Vision Bus Aotearoa

This afternoon, Dame Cindy officially opened Vision Bus Aotearoa; University of Auckland - Waipapa Taumata Rau's initiative to help solve inequities and barriers of access in getting better eye health to those in need. The School of Optometry and Vision Science had been screening the vision of thousands of school children in the greater Auckland area, and found one in ten had a vision impairment that was not yet being treated. With the help of this new mobile optometry clinic, the School has the ability to provide a wider range of free eye-health services to more people.
