The Brien Holden Vision Institute’s (BHVI) research collaborator, Hai Yen Eye Care, has opened a research centre in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam.
The Hai Yen Vision Research Institute, a research arm in the private ophthalmology sector, is the first of its kind in Vietnam. The collaboration between BHVI and Hai Yen Eye Care is part of BHVI’s commitment to increase its global reach in the area of myopia management.
BHVI has been a significant collaborator and contributor to our research and the role they have played in helping us develop our research teams cannot be overstated
“As a group, we have a very close connection with Vietnam and specifically Hai Yen Eye Care, and the opening of this research arm represents an extension of our reach,” says Yvette Waddell, CEO of BHVI.
“Myopia is the fastest growing vision impairment facing the world today and we know the growth is particularly rapid in South East Asia including in Vietnam. Further research, collaboration and training of professionals is essential, and we are proud of our world-renowned reputation in this space.”
Professor Tran Hai Yen, President of Hai Yen Vision Research and Training and Co-founder and CEO of Hai Yen Eye Care said, “BHVI has been a significant collaborator and contributor to our research and the role they have played in helping us develop our research teams cannot be overstated”.
Ms Waddell and BHVI’s Professor Padmaja Sankaridurg, Head of Myopia Management and Intellectual Property, attended the opening and provided a half day workshop on myopia management.
