After completing eye camp for children at Janathe Pada, Taluka Vikramgadh, Thane, we realised the need of doing the same check-up for adults of Janathe Pada and villages nearby. This camp was arranged on 2nd March 2013.
This camp covered 4-5 villages in the nearby region. We had roughly 150 patient registered for the camp. The camp had a primary objective of eye check-up for optometry and identification of patients for cataract to be operated in two weeks time.
We examined 120 patients as outpatients in the camp.
|Findings from the camp||Female||Male||Grand Total|
|Patients requiring spectacles||37||36||73|
|Patients with cataract||4||2||6|
|Patients to be further referred to senior optholmologist||9||11||20|
