Comprehensive eye Camp

Comprehensive eye camps are conducted in the remotest areas of the catchment area of the hospitals. Medical teams, consisting of six ophthalmic paramedics headed by Ophthalmologist, are rendering services to the poor in the rural areas/camps, in and around 30 km from the hospital. Comprehensive eye camp has been conducted mostly at those places where patients are getting comprehensive eye care service at their door steps.

School Screening Camp

GHS is addressing the eye related issue of children. To provide eye care services to the school children both the hospitals are conducting a good number of school screening eye camp where correction of refractive error was the main focus. From this camp the children are getting free eye care services from the qualified Ophthalmologist of GHS at their school.


Industry Camp

Both the hospitals, Bogra and Barisal, has been conducted Industry Camp to provide eye care services to the worker of the industry who are working for contributing for strengthening of National Economy. In this camp the worker are getting free cost of eye care treatment with the qualified Ophthalmologist. Barisal is a river rune area; industrial development at Barisal is less than other part of the country. Fishing and agriculture is the main occupation of the people of Barisal. As such the scopes of conducting industrial camp were very less than Bogra. Yet the hospital management conducted a few industrial camps there. Patients are getting free eye care services from each type of camp.
