Santosh Hospital’s Opthalmology Department organized Free Glaucoma Removal Health Camp during International Glaucoma Week from March 6-12, 2016.
On this occasion, our Senior Eye Care Specialist, Dr. Anshu Sharma during Glaucoma diagnosis workshop informed that timely Glaucoma’s treatment is possible only with regular eye-checkups. If not treated in time, the disease can result in blindness.
In total, around 350 patients participated in this Free Health Camp. Out of them, 50 were diagnosed with Glaucoma. Proper treatment in terms of Free Medicines and information on available surgery options were given to the patients.
Dr. Sharma asserted his commitment and responsibility towards organizing such awareness camps in near future.
