The Lifeline Foundation Trust in collaboration with North Care Hospital organised an Eye Check-up Camp for underprivileged communities at North care Centre, 27th October 2019 from 10 am to 1 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 80 individuals were screened for eye diseases, 36 Glasses were noted down to give the patients with refractive errors and 4 patients were identified for Cataract surgery. Some of the people were also provided eye drops for eye lubrication and free medicines. A total of Rs 7700 was paid for the glasses including order lenses and bifocal glasses.
