A team of dedicated ophthalmologists, led by Professor Muhammad Moin, Principal of the College of Ophthalmology at Mayo Hospital Lahore, achieved a significant milestone by performing cornea transplants in the eyes of five patients. This groundbreaking procedure has restored vision for those who had lost hope.

Following the corneal transplant surgeries, patients expressed heartfelt gratitude as their once-dimmed world was illuminated once again.

The intricate nature of corneal transplantation underscores the expertise and cutting-edge facilities available at Mayo Hospital’s Department of Ophthalmology.

While the cost of such surgeries can be prohibitively high, this project at Mayo Hospital ensures that patients receive this life-changing procedure free of charge.

Professor Muhammad Moin, Chairman of Mayo Hospital’s Department of Ophthalmology, stressed the importance of preventive measures to safeguard against corneal diseases. His recommendations include:

Safety Goggles: When working with lathes, saws, welding, or chemicals, always use safety goggles to protect your eyes.

Accident Avoidance: Vigilance in avoiding accidents and altercations can significantly reduce the risk of corneal injuries and complications.

Child Safety: Ensure that children are shielded from sharp objects like pencils and knives.

This recent cornea transplant initiative received support from Dr. Mufiz Chauhan, an accomplished medical professional based in America.

Dr. Chauhan, a 1973 graduate of King Edward Medical College, exemplifies the global collaboration driving advancements in ophthalmology.
