Eye Operations

£60 can give the gift of sight

Story

Just £60 can make a life changing difference by providing necessary eye care operations to restore sight.

Our eye care programme is giving hundreds of people the gift of sight. It’s enabling children to continue with their education, parents to provide for their family, and individuals to integrate into their communities.

Our eye camps screen patients for cataracts, presbyopia and ocular motility, in addition to screening children for refractive error. We also treat eye infections, provide prescriptions and spectacles, as well as perform surgical procedures for those with correctible problems.

In 2018  SKT Welfare screened nearly 2,000 people were screened, 1,015 received medication for infections, 151 cataract operations were performed, 1,070 pairs of reading glasses for adults were ordered, as well as 254 pairs of glasses for children.

100% of your donation goes towards saving the sight of a vulnerbale person.
