IGEHRC, School Screening Programme

Six school screening camps have been held so far - 3,960 children checked; 790 referred to the hospitals for treatment; and over 37 teachers trained in detection of eye problems. One of the positive outcomes of this programme has been that parents and teachers have been sensitised to the need for early treatment of children as well as to the importance of their eye care.
