TINDERET SUB COUNTY RESIDENTS GET FREE CATARACT SURGERY, EYE CHECK UP
Hundreds of Tinderet Sub County residents with eye complications have received free cataract surgery and free eye check-ups, courtesy of the County Government of Nandi in collaboration with Sabatia Eye Hospital.
Speaking at the Hospital, the Medical Superintendent and Tinderet Sub County MoH Dr Joseph Kibor said that Eye sight is very important and without sight, your normal life gets affected. “Cataracts are a major threat to losing eyesight and most common among the elderly,” he noted.
