Eye screening camp was organised by SRCF team along with AFMC eye department at Ramtekdi, Pune.
Till now we have conducted two comprehensive eye check-ups to screen common eye problems in senior citizen. We have examined total 192 senior citizens in which 26 senior citizens were advised for spectacles. Free spectacles were distributed to all the 26 senior citizens by SRCF which is supported by TATA Trusts and Axis Bank Foundation. After spectacles distribution, the seniors were monitored for their problems and regular follow ups are taken.
Along with AFMC ophthalmologist, we are planning to conduct more such camps for senior citizens living in and around Ramtekdi and our focus is to eradicate the common eye conditions.
