During the recent Haiti Foundation of Hope medical team, three ophthalmologists were at the Clinic of Hope. Patients were screened for cataracts and glaucoma.
On March 9, Dr. Pierre-Yves Decastro, a Haitian ophthalmologist from Port-au-Prince, came to perform cataract surgeries. Ten patients had successful surgery – the gift of sight.
Haiti Foundation of Hope is thankful for the partnership with Dr. Decastro. In the four years he has come to Terre Blanche, 45 people have had this sight-giving surgery. Another surgery date is scheduled for 2019.
