Free Eye and ENT camps (DBCS)

A team from KMF consisting of an ophthalmologist, optometrists, nurses and volunteers has been conducting free eye camps twice a month in the villages in Kotagiri since July 2022. Persons with cataract are screened and undergo free cataract surgeries in KMF under the DBCS (District Blindness Control Society) scheme. Between 80-125 villagers make use of the camps each time and 75 free surgeries have been done so far. Those with refractive error are provided glasses in the camp. ENT hearing screening was incorporated from September and those with hearing loss are guided for hearing aid evaluation.
