Eye screenings in remote areas in Cambodia

Ratanakiri is a province in the northeast of Cambodia. The province has about 184.000 inhabitants, most of whom work on the land. It is a poor province with limited infrastructure and large distances between villages. In order to provide the residents in remote areas with good eye care, eye screenings are regularly held on site. During these eye screenings, the eyes of local people are checked. If necessary, patients are referred to the provincial hospital. The pictures below are from the eye screening that took place in June 2017.
