Project Report | Dec 4, 2023
1,121 Free Cataract Surgeries in Swat and Mohmand Districts, KPK

By Sarah Ahmed | Project Leader

As part of Al-Mustafa's free Cataract Surgery Campaign, we arrange Eye Camps across Pakistan to fight preventable blindness, especially in deprived communities.  

The Locations:

SWAT DISTRICT

The valley of Swat is undisputedly among one of the most beautiful and vibrant tourist destinations in Pakistan. Apart from being subjected to harsh weather and poor development, the valley has been targeted by external terrorism, which has made living difficult, including access to healthcare and educational facilities. Al-Mustafa's Free Cataract Campaign Team visited the following two areas in Swat and held two days of Eye Camps in each area.

1. Matta

Matta is a small town near Mengora city, district of Swat. 

Statistical Summary of the Surgical Eye Camp

  • Total Beneficiaries                                                            876
  • Total Cataract Surgeries                                                  328
  • Total Hep-C Positive                                                         0       

2. Bahrain

Bahrain is also a tiny town near Mengora City, district of Swat. 

Statistical Summary of Surgical Eye Camp

  • Total Beneficiaries                                                            1100
  • Total Cataract Surgeries                                                  340
  • Total Hep-C Positive                                                         0         

 

MOHMOND DISTRICT

Mohmand is a tribal district of KPK, which has greatly suffered due to terrorism during the Afghan War. 

Statistical Summary of Surgical Eye Camp

  • Total Beneficiaries                                                           1245
  • Total Cataract Surgeries                                                  453
  • Total Hep-C Positive                                                         0         

 

Our Team

The team for the Eye Camps consists of 3 Ophthalmologists and 14 other technical staff. Local volunteers from schools and other social workers are also encouraged to participate.

The Camp

All the Eye Camps were conducted for two days each. Patients who required eye care treatment other than cataract surgery were also given necessary treatment and medicines at the same site. All these services were provided entirely free of cost.

Postoperative Follow-ups

After one month, postoperative follow-ups were done by ophthalmic assistants of the respective primary eye care centres.

Hepatitis-C Investigations

Apart from providing Eye Care Services, we also conduct free Hepatitis-C investigations to segregate such patients from healthy ones to reduce contamination chances. The positive cases are referred for further treatment.
