The mission of Enfoque Ixcán is to ensure that the people of the Ixcán region of Guatemala have access to vision and eye health care and eye health education. Enfoque Ixcán maximizes the use of local and regional resources and builds capacity and expertise among the population in order to empower local communities.
Meet Felipe Panjoj, who started working with Enfoque Ixcán in 2005, Carlos Quinilla, who started in 2017, and Roxana Larios, who started as an eye health promoter in 2019 when she was 16 years old.
Every other year Enfoque Ixcán board members spend a week in Ixcán teaching them the basics of eye care including anatomy, optics, refraction, eye glasses dispensing, and disease recognition.

ENFOQUE IXCÁN / AMIGOS EYE CARE
GUATEMALA MISSION TRIP AUGUST 2022
In August 2022 nine Amigos Eye Care students from Pacific University traveled with Enfoque Ixcán to Guatemala for our 18th joint mission trip serving the people of Ixcán, Guatemala. In their 4 days of clinics they saw 755 patients and dispensed 334 pairs of glasses. They also diagnosed over 55 people needing cataract surgeries. Many of these people will be traveling with Enfoque Ixcán’s eye health promoters within the next month, to the Guatemalan eye clinic where their cataract surgeries will be performed.
Your donations help keep this program moving forward. THANK YOU!
Enjoy a pleasant visit with the Board of Enfoque Ixcán and see the happy results of your kind donations.
