5200 Eye-Patients have been served in Kishorganj’s Free Eye Camp
A free eye camp of Al-Basar International Foundation, Bangladesh Sector, has been implemented in Kishorganj from 24 February to 2 March 2017.
The patients with cataract came to the camp as early in the morning as possible. For many it was a golden opportunity to have such a large free eye camp in their area. Having arrived at Qatar charity organization’s premises in the Upazila city of Bhairab, Man and woman stood in separate queues quite and almost soundless. After the inauguration of the program they proceeded to doctor’s chambers one by one. Twelve doctors and ophthalmologist aided with nurses and volunteers have been in full preparation for receiving them. 5200 people, who came to the camp could get opportunity for having their eyes screened.
After a thorough screening of all patients we found 750 patients who have blurred vision because of cataract. After further investigation 534 patients were found fit for operation for cataract removal and planting an artificial lens.
The other patients were given eye droops, pills, glasses and ointments according to the need of patients and advice of doctors.
A delegate from the sponsoring organization, `Noor Dubai’ honored the camp by their presence. Dr. Manal Al-Shamsy had been the head of this auspicious delegate. Members of the delegate sat with the patients, talked to them and touched their hearts and earned their love. We wish them every success in their life.-->
