Thanks to your donation through GlobalGiving and the efforts of ACREC's operative and medical team, 20 patients were treated during the last three months, providing 65 ophthalmological consultations, diagnostic studies and preoperative protocol . Twenty cataract surgeries were performed on vulnerable patients deprived of their right to health. To date we can account for the success in surgical treatments so that in the medium and long term we will be able to account for the positive impact on these patients by changing their quality of life in relation to visual functioning.Below are photos of some patients who have benefited from your donation. Again thank you very much for your donation and allow them to "See Again". Attachments:
Thanks to the support of donors in GlobalGiving it was possible for 35 older adults to have cataract, glaucoma and retina surgeries, improving their quality of life, as is the case of Mrs. Carmen, 85 years old, originally from Teloloapan, a highly marginalized indigenous town in the State of Guerrero, who was widowed a year ago and moved to her grandson's house. He helps her financially to cover her personal and household expenses. Carmen was diagnosed with cataract, because of this condition she could not carry out her daily and personal activities, being helped by a niece. She underwent cataract surgery, recovering her ability to carry out her activities and thus improving her quality of life.
