Secondary Cataract Screening...

The Mercy Vision eye team went to local clinics in surrounding communities for the initial screening late last year. Some 2,000 potential patients were screened in just a few months. Those who were deemed suitable for cataract surgery were given appointment cards to come to Zithulele Mission Hospital for secondary screening in February. This process happened during the week of February 11th - February 15th and Candace and I were privileged to be involved. We supported the hard-working Mercy Vision team as they ensured that patients were ready for the surgeries scheduled for the following two weeks.

*All photos here were taken with the patients' knowledge and permission.
