Ondo offers free eye surgery, others

The last exercise conducted at the Millennium Eye Centre in the Akure Specialist Hospital had a team of eye surgeons and specialists dealt with cataract extraction and intraocular lens implantation surgeries on patients mainly from the Central Senatorial District.

Out of the 150 patients discovered to be suffering from cataract, 54 of them were found suitable for corrective surgeries and were operated upon in the first two days of the exercise while 700 glasses were distributed to those whose cases could be tackled with lens correction.

Speaking at the closing ceremony of the four-day programme, Commissioner for Health, Lawrence Adegbemiro, said the gesture “is an evidence of this administration’s unrelenting efforts to get good and qualitative health care to the people of Ondo State.”
