Doctors Angira Shrestha and Sanjita Sharma managed a two-day cataract workshop at the Hetauda Community Eye Hospital in Nepal. A total of 819 patients were screened and 157 cataract operations were provided. Among the patients was Binu Maya Chepang a resident of Kakada VDC Makwanpur. Binu walked for seven hours to come to the workshop and receive treatment. She is now cataract free and her vision has been restored.
Doctors Geoff Tabin and Huck Holz worked with partners from Gondar University Hospital in Ethiopia to manage a high-volume cataract workshop at Debre-Tabor Hospital. During the workshop, 629 surgeries were provided including 13 pediatric cataract surgeries. Over the next year, HCP will be working to enhance the ophthalmology teaching programs at Gondar, with a focus on residency and sub-specialty fellowship training.
