Intensive eye surgery week held in Alice Springs

Date posted: 30 September 2013

The Fred Hollows Foundation has been working with the Northern Territory Department of Health's Alice Springs Hospital Eye Health Clinic to hold intensive eye surgery weeks to address the backlog of surgery for Aboriginal people from the remote Central and Barkley regions.

These intensives have been extremely successful in the past and last week 30 patients were targeted for surgery in Alice Springs. Since 2007, 637 Aboriginal patients have been seen. Patients come by plane, bus or community health clinic vehicles, from remote communities to receive this life-transforming surgery.
