SYMA Eye Camp - writes The Hindu Downtown

I had posted in detail about Independence Day Celebrations in Triplicane, at SYMA medical Centre where  National flag was hoisted by Shri M. Murali of Sri Krishna Sweets.   Later at  Sirvi Samaj Bhavan, SYMA with Lions Club Venus, Sri Kanchi Kamakoti Trust  and Sri Sankara Eye Hospital Pammal conducted  eye camp for detection of Cataract and free surgery for those afflicted.   Around 195 persons were screened – 34 were found afflicted and will undergo free cataract surgery shortly. Around 32 persons were prescribed glasses, which will be given free to them by SYMA.

SYMA conducts tenth eye camp

Nearly 200 people were screened at the eye camp organised by SYMA on Independence Day, where M. Murali, proprietor of Shree Krishna Sweets hoisted the flag and inaugurated the camp at Sri Seervi Samaj Bhavan.

Twenty five persons were prescribed spectacles, which will be given free by the Association in memory of its member Raghavan, who died three years ago. Patients detected with eye problems requiring surgical treatment for cataract were taken to Pammal Sankara Eye Hospital. For more than 10 years now, SYMA has been conducting the camp. This time, it was organised in association with Pammal Sri Sankara Eye Hospital, Lions Club of Chennai Venus, Sri Kanchikamakoti Sankara Medical Trust and Seervi Samaj.

Secretary S. Sampathkumar welcomed the gathering and spoke about the various activities of the Association. CEO of Sankara Eye Hospital Babu, vice-president Seshadri and treasurer M. K. Sridharan spoke. The camp was coordinated by M.A. Sadagopan.
