Get your eyes checked for free at the mobile eye clinic

Fiji’s first mobile eye clinic is now open for business and we want you to step aboard to get your eyes checked! It’s a world-class clinic where anyone experiencing eye problems can have an eye test and be treated for a range of conditions by our friendly eye doctors, nurses and technicians.

What is the mobile eye clinic?

It’s a large mobile truck and trailer unit which will travel to regional communities in Fiji, providing sight-restoring services to anyone who needs help with their eyes. The mobile eye clinic is built to international medical standards and is of the same quality as similar clinics operating in Queensland, Australia and in New Zealand.
