More than 1,200 patients are listed to receive free eye treatment at a camp held in the Myoma Pariyatti monastery compound, Indaw Town in Katha District, Sagaing Region, from 31 December 2017 to 1 January 2018.
“All the patients were examined by eye specialists. A few patients were treated at the Indaw public hospital, while those requiring emergency treatment were brought to Mandalay General Hospital.
The overall expenditure for the patients’ treatment was borne by local corporate donors from Indaw Township, as well as Shwe Indaw family restaurant.
The free eye treatment programme was held with the aim of improving the patients’ vision and physical appearance.
