“SIGHT FOR THE SIGHTLESS”: LASUTH PROVIDES NEW LEASE OF LIFE FOR INDIGENT CATARACT PATIENTS



The management of Lagos State University Teaching Hospital (LASUTH) has come to the rescue of some indigent cataract patients to provide free surgical services for the affected people. A mission was undertaken recently in the hospital. This mission was carried out in collaboration with the Vision Care team from South Korea who came to lend a helping hand in the provision of free surgery to cataract patients.

The Chief Medical Director. Prof Adetokunbo O. Fabamwo recalled that over the years, with the help of the Lagos State Government, LASUTH has been fully committed to bringing innovation and accessible healthcare to the people of Lagos in particular and Nigeria as a whole.

While addressing newsmen in LASUTH, he commended the magnanimity of the South Korean Team for their interest in Lagos and LASUTH, and their commitment to restore vision in people who cannot afford the cost of the surgery.

"This partnership is no doubt a beneficial one, as it has become an annual mission to reach out to those who are really suffering from cataract in their early stages before it becomes complicated and more difficult to remedy.

It is noteworthy that the Korean Vision Care Mission is partnering with us to drive one of our cardinal objectives of providing accessible healthcare to our people.
