The Ruparelia Foundation on 20th and 21st August 2022, will hold a medical eye camp in Kamuli, at the Shree Hind Bhavin Samal, providing free eye checks, treatments, glasses and cataract surgeries.
Cataracts remain the leading cause of blindness in low/middle-income families, the highest burden is thought to be in the Karamoja and Busoga regions.
According to Dr Susan Kikira, a consultant ophthalmologist, cataracts cause 57% of blindness cases in the nation, and uncorrected refractive errors are the most frequent cause of visual impairment.
Based on this medical background, more than 2000 people with different eye problems are expected to turn up on the 20th and 21st of August, 2022 in Kamuli district.
The North Indian Cultural Association (NICA) has also rendered tremendous support to the cause, aimed at offering free eye health care to the people of Kamuli and the surrounding communities.
