Cataract Project

Our medical specialist, dr. Junet van der Merwe, is one of two ophthalmologists at the Eye Clinic at Eersteriver Hospital in the Western Cape. Due to being in the midst of things, she is acutely aware of the fact that there is a very long waiting list for cataract surgery, and feels passionate about the prevention of blindness in the Western Cape. Radiance Foundation adopted the project to fill the gap in trying to diminish the long waiting list by doing operations through donations received from benefactors of Radiance Foundation.

Our presentation at the Public Private Forum on 16 September 2014 can shed more light on the necessity of focusing our attention on cataract surgery in the Western Cape to tap into the vision of the World Health Organisation called "The Global Initiative for the Elimination of Avoidable Blindness by 2020".
