Eye check-up Camp at Ramtekdi:
An eye check-up camp was organized by SRCF team along-with 10 Ophthalmologists from AFMC hospital in Ramtekdi area on 30thDecember 2018. This check-up was free of cost for all patients. Specialist doctors examined 210 patients out of which 97 were senior citizens.
Patients were screened for various eye diseases, 29 patients were referred for cataract surgery, 149 patients were referred to AFMC OPD for further interventions and 7 patients were advised for spectacles. Team made sure these patients were given utmost care and prescribed treatment. Medicines were distributed as required.
Free spectacles will be given to the senior citizens by SRCF which is supported by TATA Trusts and Axis Bank Foundation. For cataract patients free surgery will be arranged at AFMC hospital.
SRCF is planning to do more such camps and cover the entire population of Sr Citzens – 1000 or so in Ramtekdi and surrounding slums in this year. We are working with the AFMC team to do a more meaningful intervention for diabetic retinopathy and macular degeneration which are also common among senior citizens.
