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.

Will I have to pay?

All eye checks, treatments and surgeries are provided free of charge, though there may be a small cost for purchasing eyeglasses (if required).

What should I expect?

Our eye nurses will do an eye test to find out what your sight is like. Depending on your eye condition, we’ll be able to provide a range of treatments including surgery if necessary. There may be a bit of a wait on the day, so do bring plenty of food and water.
