2019?! Buhari Offers Free Cataract Surgery To 270 Persons
At least 270 visually impaired persons will have a reason to be happy and see clearer as help is coming their way.
Dr James Ajige, a Consultant Orphthomologist at the Dalhatu Araf Specialist Hospital, Lafia said President Muhammadu Buhari’s “Restore Vision Project” is offering free cataract surgery to more than 270 visually impaired persons in Nasarawa State.
Dr Ajige added that the exercise has commenced with the screening of persons with cases. He explained that after proper examination, those requiring surgery would undergo the process.
“We have already screened quite a number of persons and are expecting more to come forward and get screened in order to benefit from this gesture that will be carried out across the three senatorial zones of the state,” Ajige said.
“I will like to encourage anyone with poor vision to go for proper medical check at the hospital to avoid complications given the sensitivity of the eye,” he advised.
The Minister of Health, Prof. Isaac Adewole, had on March 8, 2018, launched the Buhari Restore Vision Project aimed at restoring sight to 10,000 Nigerians with cataract through surgical intervention.
