Lifeline Express, the Eye Hospital on Wheels Arrives in Beijing


Dozens of retired people, parents and their children, students and employees in Beijing received free eye care and information from the mobile eye hospital, Lifeline Express, in the western suburbs of Beijing on April 19.


Lifeline Express, founded in 1997, is the only mobile eye-hospital train providing free surgical operations in China. It’s also a base of training for eye doctors, and an NGO committed to helping needy cataract victims.


The train consists of four carriages, including an operating room, an examination room, beds, a sterilization room and a conference room.


Doctors from Peking University People's Hospital lectured visitors about preventing eye diseases and provided suggestions on prevention and treatment of juvenile myopia, dry eyes, common eye problems and diabetic retinopathy. They also provided free eye examinations with the high-end medical equipment on the train.
