Some 52 patients received eye surgery, among them 33 male and 20 female patients.

Bashundhara Eye Hospital and Research Institute, Vision Care Foundation and AKM Tabu Taher Foundation organised the free eye camp.

“Around 2,100 patients already received free surgery through this free eye camp across the country,” he said.

Bashundhara Eye Hospital and Research Institute started treatment services in April 2014 through modern medical equipment and investigations while more tertiary eye treatments are now being given here by using modern operation theater.
