The faculties were supported by YRC student coordinators & members. The event was promoted in neighborhood on large scale by the student coordinators. Total 51 societies were visited by them to promote this event and spread its invitation.
Experienced expert team and doctors from Wavikar eye institute has tested around 120 participants from the institute and neighborhood. Camp privileges include vision care with Auto- Refractometer, Refraction, Diabetic retinopathy screening, random blood sugar, ophthalmologist consultation with report. The camp was helpful for the low economy class people who cannot afford costly eye tests and consultation. The smile on their faces speaks for us, much more strongly than any words. The response to the camp was overwhelming as around 150 people had visited the camp and got benefited.
