3,000 people to receive free eye surgery in Kayin State


THE Sitagu Sayadaw, a well-known monk in Myanmar, has initiated a programme this month that will offer free eye care to roughly 3,000 people who suffer eye disorders across Hlaingbwe Township, Kayin State.
The patients are now receiving medical examinations by eye specialists from England in cooperation with local experts.
With the assistance of the public, the Sayadaw has carried out similar philanthropic programmes for many years with the aim of providing better lives for people by improving and treating their vision without discrimination against race or religion.
The programme allows all people with vision problems and who qualify for operations to receive eye surgeries performed by both local and international experts.
“There are no exact figures in the country, but numerous people are suffering from different kinds of eye diseases,” a doctor said.
The 2014 latest census shows that half of the people with disabilities in Myanmar are vision-impaired persons.
