Tapeljung, March 6

Some 70 people underwent cataract surgery at a free eye check-up camp run by Dr Sanduk Ruit in Phaktanglung Rural Township in Taplejung District.

The free eye check-up camp was jointly organized by the Tilganga Institute of Ophthalmology Kathmandu and Phaktanglung Rural Township. Surgeries were performed on Saturday and Sunday.

In total, 2,430 locals visited the eye examination camp to have their eyes examined in Phaktanglung, where Dr. Ruit was born.

Phaktanglung Rural Municipality Chairman Mukti Labung says patients who had difficulty visiting other places were treated at the eye examination camp and received free meals and transportation to visit the camp from their remote village.

Also, four patients with serious problems have been referred to the Tilganga Institute of Ophthalmology in Kathmandu for further treatment.
