Medical experts from over 10 hospitals in China have traveled to rural Yunnan Province to provide free eye disease screening, myopia checks and optometry services to raise awareness of rural children's eye health.
The Bright Eye Hospital Group experts also promoted eye disease prevention and control through education lectures, free optic examination and glasses processing.
Ten doctors, nurses, opticians and volunteers of the group participated in the charity program launched by Essilor Vision Foundation and the Sichou County Education and Physical Education Bureau in Yunnan.
The bureau said the program will help establish a comprehensive prevention and management system on kids' eye health through education, prevention, screening and timely diagnosis and treatment.
