China-Hong Kong Ophthalmologists Exchange Program – Shanxi Trip report
As this year’s Hong Kong representatives of “China-Hong Kong Ophthalmologists Exchange Programme”, we travelled to Shanxi province to learn more about the operation of mobile eye treatment centres(METC) in late November 2017.
We visited Shanxi’s mobile eye treatment centre 復明六號 and were deeply impressed by how well equipped it is despite its size. It is a modified cargo truck, which has an examination room with a slit lamp,as well as an operating theatre. The operating theatre was fully furnished with a surgical microscope,medical equipment and even sterilization machine for surgical instruments. During our visit, the mobile treatment centre travelled to Ling Shi County, where we observed 2 smooth cataract operations for theunderprivileged and provided free eye examinations for the residents there. We saw how useful METC is, especially to people residing in remote areas, where access to eye care may be difficult.
Other than the METC, we also had a chance to visit Provincial Disabled Person’s Hospital and Shanxi Eye Hospital, to observe daily operations of eye clinics in China, and different techniques of cataract operations. In particular, we learnt a lot more about manual small incisional cataract surgery, which is less commonly performed in our center. Furthermore, we exchanged ideas and experiences on pre- and postoperative managements of cataract patients.
Last but not least, we would like to thank Asia Foundation for the Prevention of Blindness for this wonderful opportunity, which we broadened our horizons. We are immensely grateful and moved by the hospitality we received from Provincial Disabled Persons’ Federation 山 西省殘疾人復康研究中心. Special thanks to Mr Xu, Dr Fung, Dr Shang, Mr Wong, Mr Cheung and Ms Liu for showing us around and making this trip a very memorable one.

Our charity foundation is devoted to supporting the eye research development in Hong Kong by donating and cooperating with various organizations such as Department of Ophthalmology, Hong Kong University and Department of Ophthalmology and Visual Science, the Chinese University of Hong Kong.
1. Department of Ophthalmology, Hong Kong University
Due to the aging population and lack of local epidemiological data, it is difficult for the government to decide on the long-term health policy. We hope to provide basic information for Health Bureau and valuable data for research through this project. The project will be divided into 2 major parts.
1. Sampling eye check up and data collection in Hong Kong
2. Community Service Day
2. Department of Ophthalmology and Visual Science, the Chinese University of Hong Kong
Comprehensive eye screening program is crucial for healthy eyes development especially in children. Early treatment or intervention will prevent amblyopia, which results in permanent visual impairment. Due to the insufficient support to the underprivileged families, our charity foundation is delighted to support the free eye check-up program provided by Department of Ophthalmology and Visual Science, the Chinese University of Hong Kong.
