[www.inewsguyana.com] – By the end of the next two days, over 100 Guyanese would benefit from eye examinations and surgeries being conducted by the Chinese medical team at the Georgetown Public Hospital Corporation (GPHC).
Head Nurse of the Eye Clinic at GPHC, Kunte Bacchus told the Government Information Agency (GINA) that most of the surgeries being conducted are for the removal of cataract, which takes a minimum of 10-15 minutes to be completed.
However, two retina surgeries are slated for Thursday. These entail a more complicated procedure than the cataract surgeries. Pre-operative procedures and secondary screenings for surgery patients began since last week by the Chinese team.
