Ophthalmology Clinics – providing eye care, including cataract surgery, to underserved communities in the Episcopal Area. Emphasis on joint US and Congolese medical staff with the long term goal that eye care continue to be available in those areas.
A cataract surgery clinic in Wembo Nyama in 2009, Mpasa in 2012 and Diengenga in 2014 provided surgical ophthalmologic care for over 500 patients and assessment, medication and/or glasses for over 5000 patients. The extreme necessity for eye care in Congo has been recognized, especially due to the prevalence of blindness, most of which is treatable and preventable with the proper resources. Also, due to the increasing incidence of pediatric issues, the focus in 2016 will be on caring for children, as well as, adults with ophthalmologic disease. 2017 Cataract Mission - $47,500
