Around 3,000 people benefitted from the camp, which featured 15-20 optometrists as part of the team
SURAT (Gujarat): Gangar Eyenation, under CSR programme, organised a free eye check-up camp for Viramgam residents in July. Apart from measuring eye power, eye health education and awareness sessions are conducted in order to increase the level of awareness and knowledge of common eye diseases like cataracts, glaucoma, and dry eye and other vision disabilities.
Minimizing the risk of eye diseases
Timely eye checkup helps to minimize the risk of eye diseases and prevent loss of vision and blindness that can arise from factors that range from age, COVID as well as increased exposure to technology.
Creating awareness on eye-centric issues and disorders
Jigar Gangar, Director of Gangar Eyenation, says, The one-day free eye checkup camp is part of their commitment to creating awareness about eye-centric issues and disorders. As a universal need, we have put our efforts into creating access to good eye healthcare for all people, regardless of their economic means and to provide high-quality and affordable eye care to more and more people around the country, but in a post-COVID-world, it has become even more necessary.”
He says, adding, “It’s not just about diabetes or thyroid impacting the vision, there are more complications with the arrival of the virus. We are now pouring into our gadgets for everything and for long hours leading to eye-related problems to shoot up, especially among children.”
Touching so many lives in Viramgam
Gangar also thanked the group of optometrists for their support in making the eye check-up camp a success. “We are proud to have touched so many lives in Viramgam and are looking forward to conducting similar free eye check-up camps in other places, thus spreading awareness to a larger number of people. We believe every citizen has a right to this information as well as have access to the treatments as well,” he adds.
