SIGHT BACK FOR ELDERS
KWS is proposing fund the eye screening and Cataract surgery project with the support of the local eye specialists. This fund covers Eye screening, cataract surgery, lenses and post operative drugs.
Cataract is a common cause of blindness in the old age. Eye screen is also detected major illness and disease at early stage.
Our fund will also cover those cataract patients who cannot afford to buy the lens and eye drops which are not available free in Sri Lanka.
Cost per patient is approximately £50. The cost of pair of glass and eye drop is approximately £5 per person. So far, we have identified 28 patients who will require Cataract surgery. The surgery will be carried out in Moolai hospital in the near future.
We expect to continue this project year on year with your help. Please help us to help poor people to get their sight back.
