A free eye screening camp was held at Mirpur in the capital on Thursday.
Rights and Sight for Children (RSC) and TMSS Masuda Maternity Hospital organised the event with the support of Distressed Children & Infants International (DCI).
The goal of the event is to assist underprivileged people needing eye surgery or eyeglasses.
More than 200 underprivileged people received free eye treatment from the camp.
Patients diagnosed with cataract and refractive errors will be provided surgeries and eyeglasses free of cost.
The eye screening camp was held in memory of the late professor Dr. Syed A.Wadud (renowned Bangladeshi ophthalmologist and goodwill ambassador/patron of Distressed Children & Infants International-DCI, USA).
Naasik Syed, a volunteer for both DCI, USA and RSC and also the grandson of Dr. Dr. Syed A. Wadud, helped in organizing the eye camp and inaugurated the free Eye Camp.
