Fundus camera donated to Pakistan community hospital
Potentially sight-saving eye screening equipment has recently been donated to a Pakistan community hospital by Specsavers in Rickmansworth – which means the hospital are now able to increase the care they give to their local community.
Due to a recent investment in the hospital-grade OCT (Optical Coherence Tomography) machine, the store was able to donate their original fundus camera as the new technology takes care of this part of the eye test.
Samar Ellahi made the connection with the hospital
Samar Ellahi, who looks after NHS submissions at Rickmansworth Specsavers, also works with a community hospital in Pakistan and knows their need for new equipment.
Ali Hashim, Ophthalmic Director at Rickmansworth Specsavers says: “We are so in awe of what Samar does out in Pakistan. We are really pleased to be able to donate the fundus camera so that the public hospital can increase its care for the community.”
Make use of the OCT
The OCT scan can help to pick up early signs of diseases years before traditional methods and can be done in minutes as part of your eye test.
