Organization of ‘Free Eye Check Up Camp’
India is agricultural country and many people live in rural area. Majority senior citizens who live in village are illiterate, economically backward, careless about their health, neglected by their family. They cannot get medical facilities from cities easily. Even they are not aware about their health problem especially eye problems in this context, it is felt that the students from NSS Unit can work for this people.
The NSS Unit of our college adapt a village for their extension activities. The students from NSS unit takes survey of patients suffering from eye problems. They convince and inform them about free eye check up camp. Our institute organizes free Eye check – up camp in collaboration with Jayant Netralaya (Ngo) Islampur. Patients are checked and guided for further actions. They are provided spectacles also. They are advised and guided for their cataract operations.
It is found that there is a good response from senior citizens for camp. Our students have created awareness about their eye – problems. They have become successful to convince them about the benefits of cataract operations. The senior citizens who have participated in free eye check-up camp are provided the facilities like cataract operations, spectacles and other medicines in Jayant Netralaya (Ngo)
It is very difficult to convince old people for operations. They have fear in their mind about such operations.
