Al-Shifa Trust Eye Hospital arranges free eye camp at Orakzai and Ghilju

A five day surgical eye camp was arranged at Agency Headquarter Hospital Mishti Mela, Orakzai and THQ Ghilju. This eye camp was sponsored by General Orakzai with the collaboration of Orakzai Scouts from 9th to 13th October 2019. Like every other camp, the ultimate goal of this camp was also to cater to the health requirements of underprivileged people in far flung areas as well as screening of school children in remote areas of Mishti Mela, Orakzai.

The highlights of the camp were free Eye Specialist Consultation, free Phaco foldable surgeries, provision of free medicines and glasses after screening and computerized eye sight checking. In school screening camps, students and teachers were given awareness sessions about maintaining eye health and the precautionary measures for different eye related problems.

In a nutshell, 1359 OPD’s and 89 surgeries were conducted whereas 2736 school children were screened in Orakzai. In THQ Ghilju, 139 OPD’s were conducted out of which 13 patients were referred to the doctors for treatment.
