In continuing its tradition of continually refining the care, HMH now treats diabetic patients selected for cataract surgery as well.
Every cataract patient undergoes blood sugar examination. HMH found through our eye camps that 30% of the patient population selected for cataract operations are diabetic and hence become unfit for surgery.
To help restore their eye sight, diabetes must first be controlled. Since most of the patients are from villages, HMH also educates the patients on the need for proper follow up.
With this, HMH takes another firm step in our community service.
This plan was inaugurated at HMH by Mrs. A. Jaya, Hon. Mayor of Trichy City Corporation. HMH’s Dr. Alamelu welcomed the mayor in the function and spoke of the need for this service.
