The Integrative Community Health Centre at Lai King

ICHC Entrance The Integrative Community Health Centre (ICHC), established in 2004 in Lai King, is the first off campus health centre of PolyU. The ICHC is built on the concept of integrative holistic health care, and aims at providing health protection to the community.

Besides delivering primary eye care consultations to the community, we also collaborate with hospital to provide diabetic retinopathy screening service.  

The Integrative Community Health Centre at Lai King

Primary eye care is a consultation held by registered optometrists or student optometrists under the supervision of our staff to carry out a comprehensive array of investigations aiming at determining the status of your vision and eye health.

The primary eye care consultation encompasses:

  • Assessment of vision
  • Measurement of refractive error
  • Assessment of the coordination between the two eyes
  • Evaluation of ocular health
  • Diagnosis and management of visual conditions 

At the end of the consultation, the optometrist will discuss the clinical findings with you and make recommendations. 

 

We provide optical dispensing service; you can choose suitable frames and lenses after the consultation. 

The Chief Executive of Hong Kong Special Administration Region announced in his 2013 Policy Address that HK$100 million would be earmarked for each district to initiate projects under the Signature Project Scheme, with the project to address local needs, or highlight the characteristics of the district and to have a visible and lasting impact on the community. 

The School of Optometry is collaborating with Kwai Tsing Safe Community and Healthy City Association to provide subsidized comprehensive eye examinations to Kwai Tsing district’s elderly residents from 2015. Under the Scheme, all eligible elderly can apply for an eye examination through the Kwai Tsing District Office which will draw lots for the applications. Our School will provide the eye examinations by the student optometrists under the supervision of our staff in the Integrative Community Health Centre and prescribe spectacles for eligible patients, with the eye examinations and spectacles service subsidized through the Signature Project Scheme in the Kwai Tsing district. The Kwai Tsing Signature Project, which concluded successfully in December 2020, has served over 10,000 needy people.
