10. Ocular Prosthesis
Recently introduced, the ocularist, in collaboration with the Dental department, where she is housed, is able to make custom- made artificial eyes. This is the first of its kind in the country. The ocularist receives patients requiring artificial eye prosthesis from all over the country. They work closely with our oculoplastic surgeon.
11. Outreach Services
Led by an outreach coordinator, the team does community base screening services to remote underserved areas of the country. They treat common ailments and dispense glasses, especially readers. The surgical cases identified are then referred to come to the base hospital, on a particular day, for surgery. The post surgical follow ups are done on subsequent rural visits. Such patients are partly sponsored by well- wishers and they meet only part of the surgical fees.
13. The Standard Chartered Bank SEEING-IS-BELIEVING Campaign (The Nairobi Marathon)
The Standard Chartered Bank Kenya funds congenital cataract surgeries under their programme SEEING- IS- BELIEVING campaign. We encourage well-wishers to partner with us and support eye work to save and restore sight to the needy.
We also run a POOR PATIENT FUND whose source of funding is from friends of good will like you.
