The Lifeline Foundation Trust and Al Ansar Trust in collaboration with North Care Hospital organised an Eye Check-up Camp for underprivileged communities at our newly opened Avalahalli branch on Sunday, 30 th June 2019 from 10 am to 2 pm. The objective of this camp was to spread awareness on eye disorders, early detection of ailments and refractive errors and to provide corrective glasses free of cost to the underprivileged communities.
A team of 7 members from North Care Hospital conducted the camp. Eye Specialist Dr Zulfiquar attended to the patients. The beneficiaries attending the free eye camp were evaluated for vision (refractive error) and eye ailments. Those requiring surgery, especially cataract, were advised surgery, and North Care hospital conducted these at subsidized costs.
Overall 200 individuals were screened for eye diseases, 85 Glasses were noted down to give the patients with refractive errors and 17 patients were identified for the Cataract surgery. Some of the people were also provided eye drops for eye lubrication and free medicines. Rs 50 was collected per patient to obtain the glasses, Rs 3350 was collected and the remaining amount Rs 9400 was born by the lifeline trust. Furthermore Rs 40000 worth surgeries will be sponsored by Al Ansar Trust.
