Cross River State Eye Care 

 

 

 

 

Community Eye Care Programme

TCF in collaboration with the Cross River State Government started its first camp in 2003. The camp was a huge success with more than 1,019 patients being operated over a six months period. On March 22, 2004 TCF started the present surgical program in the General hospital. 

Out- reach screening programs

The Outreach screening program covers 54 Communities in 11 Local Government Areas of Cross River State.

Mobilization and awareness is done by Community Directed Distributors of Onchocerciasis Control Programme and Extension workers with the help of Village Clan heads, Church Leaders and Local Council Members.

The screening camps are organized at the health centers. The Screening Team of CRS Eye Centre identify the operable cataract patients. Other patients are given referral notes to visit Eye Care Centre, Calabar or nearby Eye Clinics.
