Please accept our warmest greetings all the way from Kot Mithan, Punjab. 

As part of Al-Mustafa Welfare Society's Eye Campaign, a Free Eye Camp was held in Kotmithan, located in the District Rajanpur of Punjab. It is the city of the famous Sufi poet, Khawaja Ghulam Farid. It is a small city having arid-dessert-like weather and becomes extremely hot in summer. 

Objectives

  • Provision of Free Cataract Surgeries to the poor and underprivileged populations living in Pakistan's urban and rural areas who don't have access to affordable eye care services.
  • To provide medical eye care services to eliminate avoidable blindness in underdeveloped country areas.
  • To create awareness of eye care services for the elimination of blindness.

Al-Mustafa's  Eye Campaign Team selected the campsite, coordinating Al-Mustafa's local network and the feedback from the local community. To facilitate a significant number of beneficiaries, we need to reach out to the maximum number of people. For that purpose, we sought support from the Primary Eye Care Centers in the area, government health institutions, local administration, schools etc., for the advertisement and to make the campsite easily assessable for most patients in the community.

Statistical Summary:

  1. Total Beneficiaries 2245
  2. Total Cataract Surgeries 633
  3. Total Hepatitis-C Positive 09

Our Team

The team for the Eye Camps consists of 3 Ophthalmologists and 14 other technical staff. Local volunteers from schools and other social workers are also encouraged to participate.

The Camp

The Eye Camp was conducted for three days. 2245 patients were examined, and 633 Cataract Surgeries were performed at the campsite. Patients who required eye care treatment other than cataract surgery were also given necessary treatment and medicines at the same site. All these services were provided entirely free of cost.

After calculating IOL power using biometry, all cataract patients were operated on using the Small Incision Cataract Surgery procedure with Intraocular Lens (IOL) implantation. Operated patients were discharged with required medicines, a pair of sunglasses and counselling for postoperative care. Patients were found satisfied with a better vision.

Postoperative Follow-ups

After one month, postoperative follow-ups were done by Ophthalmic Assistants of the respective primary eye care centre.

Hepatitis C-Investigations

Apart from providing Eye Care Services, we also conduct Free Hepatitis-C investigations. We found 9 positive cases, which were referred for further treatment. 

We will continue to send more campsite reports in the coming days.
