In April 2022, PIRS in collaboration with a partner organization, Human Development Foundation (HDF), successfully screened 6195 school children in 12 public sector schools in Rawalpindi and Islamabad. Students identified with uncorrected refractive errors were provided with detailed refraction and spectacles. Complicated cases were referred for further management. PIRS provided technical support and human resources while HDF provided logistics and spectacles to those who needed them.
