Three-days free cataract eye camp organized by district health society Kiphire at civil Hospital Kiphire got underway on Tuesday with CMO Kiphire exhorting the patients.
Speaking at the program, CMO said district was cataract free now, with the consecutive free-eye camp conducted so far by IOL (NPCB).
He said ophthalmic was sent to all villages in the district and cataract patients surveyed and that there was no operable patient, cataract patient in the district, thus making the district cataract free.
He also added, “We can somehow live without the sense of hearing but it is sad to live without sense of sight and we cannot enjoy the beauty of the world so this is very important”.
He further expressed gratitude to the visiting officer and the surgeon for visiting far flung areas.
Earlier, Pastor Tenmiya Baptist Church Kiphire invoked God’s blessing before the operation commenced.
Ten cataract patients would be operated upon during the three days camp.
