Trip Report 

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. 

 

 

参加“亚洲防盲基金眼科医生交流”的报告 
     山西省位于中国内陆,人口数量为 3571.21 万人,每年约新增
1.27 万白内障患者。这些患者大多居住在环境恶劣、医疗条件较差
的贫困地区和边远山区,就医成为最大的难题。2015 年,叶氏化工
集团携手中国残疾人联合会和亚洲防盲基金会向我省捐赠流动眼科
手术车“复明 6 号”,并落户于我中心,使我们能够更好的为偏远地
区特别是家庭贫困、行动不便的白内障患者实施有效救治。为了更好
的提高内地医生的业务水平,2017 年 12 月 11 日到 16 日,受亚洲防
盲基金会的邀请,我和尚郡主医生有幸赴港进行为期 6 日的学习交流,
以增进两地医生,医疗技术、医疗环境的相互了解。 
  

   在港期间,我们首先来到葛量洪医院进行参观学习。这里的设
备先进,医护人员医德高尚,平易近人,对待每一位患者,每一位手
术病人都耐心周到。这里的就医环境、就医秩序和内地还是有所不同
的,更多体现在它的人性化和原则性。如在电梯门口,在楼层门口都
会设有一次性口罩免费自取处,如果你觉得需要,可以随时自行取用。
不像我们内地医院嘈杂,拥挤的就医环境,他们的病人安静的等在候
诊区,医生也会按预约的顺序接诊每一位病人,细致周到的检查病人,
并和病人交谈,医患关系十分和谐。 
      随后我们还参观了周伯展私人诊所。在跟随周医生出诊期间,
周医生首先会询问每一位患者的意见,如果患者拒绝,我们只能在外
面等候,充分体现了对患者的尊重。我们了解到,虽然公立医院因政
府补贴,收费较低,但因为医疗资源有限,病人往往等待时间较长,
有时候一个普通白内障患者要等一至两年的时间。相比与公立医院漫
长的等待,私人诊所显得尤为方便、快捷和隐私安全,但唯一的一点
就是就诊费用高昂。 
    

 最后,在香港大学眼科学系主任黎少明教授的带领下,我们参
观了香港大学眼科学系和香港大学眼科研究实验室。黎少明教授是亚
洲防盲基金会执行委员,香港青光眼协会名誉顾问,香港玛丽医院和
葛量洪医院眼科主任,香港大学深圳医院眼科主任。这里实验设施先
进,设备齐全,动物饲养房严格按照国际标准设立,这些都为进行眼
科基础研究提供良好的条件。 
通过此次参观交流,更好地促进了我中心与亚洲防盲基金会、
香港大学在防盲治盲、眼科临床及科研等各方面的合作,同时在医疗
服务、技术等方面也学到了新的知识。

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.

Current Projects:

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.
