A total of 20 free cataract operations were performed for the lower income people. Doctors performed the operations under extremely hot weather at Victoria Park.

Program: Intravitreal injection of AntiVEGF for treatment of retinal diseases
Retinal / Macular diseases are blinding conditions. These can often be treated by one or more injections of AntiVEGF into the eye. Partnership with Yan Chai Hospital, St Teresa’s Hospital and Bayer Healthcare, we deliver this treatment to the poor and needy. More than 100 patients will benefit from the program.
