Sri Aman Eye Screening

by Dr. Ngo

This screening was carried out on the 28th of October, 2005 in the Sri Aman District Hospital. Sri Aman is a town situated 198 Km from Kuching. The hospital has no ophthalmologists in residence, patients with eye problems are seen by the medical assistants. Those patients who require more detailed ophthalmic examination on non-urgent basis are given a date to see the visiting ophthalmologists from Kuching.

In this visit, the ophthalmologists saw 80 patients in the out-patients in the morning and afternoon sessions. The majority of these patients have visual problems due to cataracts. 5 pterygium and 5 cataract operations (ECCE+ IOL) were also carried out on the same day.
