We conducted two 8-hour days of free health screening and treatment. We served 256 unduplicated patients (demographics). Of these, 75% received both general medical care and eye screening. This means we provided 400 clinical services. Unfortunately, many patients are losing sights. Two in particular have lost complete sight and had walking sticks and young child guides. It is unclear why there is so many eye problems. Many needed reading glasses, a number obviously had cataract and need surgical repair. A number of patients also have glaucoma and cost of securing medications such as eye drops to treat this is astronomical. In many cases, the medications are not even available.
