15th December 2019. Regular eye checkup camps have always been a priority for Drishti to contribute its services to the underprivileged or financially weaker sections of the society. In this regard, Drishti organized an eye checkup camp in Shigally. With patchy health care services available in the area, the population there is almost deprived of quality medical facilities.
The camp attracted residents of Shigally and nearby villages which included individuals of all age groups and over a 100 poor patients were screened. In cases where patients were prescribed medicines, free medicines were distributed in the camp. On screening, about 20 were identified with cataract who will be operated free of cost sponsored by Drishti Foundation, the charity wing of Drishti.
On this occasion Dr Saurabh Luthra, addressed all those present in the camp and also promised to do such social service from time to time.
