“Health is our most important value!” Exactly this motto was chosen for its lectures for lonely pensioners by the charity fund “Health for Ukraine”, which was held with the support of CE “DOKOL” in Dnipropetrovsk. The topic of the lectures was very relevant: “Visual organs age changes”, that is why the event had a lot of success. The lectures were held in 7 centers in Dnipropetrovsk and were attended by more than 250 people. Everybody who took part in the charitable act was invited to the “Dnipropetrovsk Regional Ophthalmological Clinical Hospital” for a full computer eye diagnostics and an ophthalmologist’s consultation.
The main goal of holding the lectures is to inform elderly people about the dangers which appear at their age if they don’t take care of their state of health. A lot of diseases such as glaucoma can pass at early stages without symptoms, and the problem can only be identified by diagnosing visual organs on a regular basis.
Glaucoma is a very serious disease which can lead to blindness only half a year after its start, but you need to remember that glaucoma treatment has been being administered successfully in Dnipropetrovsk for many years by the “DOKOL” clinic, therefore having timely made a diagnosis, you can avoid frightful consequences.
Moreover, yearly on the basis of CE “DOKOL” is held a big number of charitable events the goal of which is to administer aid to socially vulnerable groups. Only in 2011 in the eye clinic medical services were administered to 677 participants and disabled people of the World War II. Also some measures were taken among elderly homes residents, 88 of which received a specialist’s consultation, and 22 of them had an eye surgery in Dnipropetrovsk. The clinic regularly purchases medicine for glaucoma treatment for the WW II participants and other welfare beneficiaries.
One of the top-priority focus areas in the work of our clinic is treating children’s eye pathologies. Thanks to CE “DOKOL”, children’s ophthalmology has risen to an absolutely new level, and we do our best to make our services affordable for everyone who needs them. The clinic’s experts administer treatment for children from the “Boarding school for visually impaired children”. We have created all the necessary conditions for children to feel care about them and to be able to count on proficient ophthalmological aid.
