Yangon Eye Hospital "The Opening Ceremony of Clinical Upskilling Training Program for Refractionists in Myanmar".
It was attended by Medical Superintendent of Yangon Eye Hospital, Prof & Head of Department of Ophthalmology, the Australian Ambassador & his team and Delegates from Sight For All.
The program will last for a year in which there will be a week of intensive teaching with international Optometry curriculum by each of 12 experienced Australian visiting Optometrists every month until 12 months.
 9 refractionists from various eye departments of Myanmar will be participating in the training program and are expected to gain higher level of Optometry knowledge, skill and competency after the course.
