Kenethh Twinamatsiko, Lapaire Uganda’s Operations Manager, emphasized the critical need for accessible eye care services in Uganda. He stated, “According to the Ministry of Health, 250,000 Ugandans are completely blind, and over 2.5 million suffer from short-sightedness that impairs their vision. Recognizing that eye care is both expensive and challenging to access in Uganda, we are expanding our reach and opening new optical shops across the city to bring eye care closer to our community. This initiative aims to increase awareness of the value of eye care and provide people with access to high-quality, reasonably priced eye care services.”
To mark the Grand Opening of the new optical shop, Lapaire plans to launch an extensive community outreach campaign, both offline and online. The campaign seeks to facilitate fast vision test bookings and raise awareness about the importance of clear sight within the community.
