Billion Hearts Beating Foundation organized an Eye check-up camp for the residents of Durga Senior Citizen & Sick Care Home at 77, Forest Lane, Sainik Farms, Saket, New Delhi – 110068 on 25-04-2017.
A Consultant Optometrist (AccuVision Eyecare) & his team conducted the eye screening tests and offered advice & remedies to these patients who were not getting any free medical treatment outside the home due to their financial difficulties. This camp was conducted for routine eye examination, spectacle correction, diagnosis and treatment of common eye ailments.
The possibility of acquiring vision complaints significantly increases for a person after the age of 65. It is therefore important for senior citizens to be cautious about eye care and take extra precautions to protect their eye sight. Adults over age 65 should get an eye exam at least once every year.
Billion Hearts Beating Foundation also delivered eye glasses to the patients who were prescribed.
