AT Vancouver’s Vaisakhi celebration and the 30th anniversary of Canadian Eyesight Global, a free eye health clinic held at Khalsa Diwan Society was a resounding success. This free eye health clinic was sponsored by the Rotary Club of Surrey and the Rotary Club of Burnaby.
A team of dedicated, eminent eye surgeons, Dr. David R.S. Neima, a director of Canadian Eyesight Global, and Dr. Warren Whitford and associates worked tirelessly for four hours as many people turned up at the clinic for eye-screening.
Patients with problems were referred to the eye specialists and doctors for further treatment. Free eye drops were given to the needy. Dr. Parmjit S. Sohal, family physician, a director of CEG, provided consultation for several other medical problems.
CEG thanked all the dedicated volunteers as well as Malkiat Singh Dhami, President, and Gurdeep S. Hayer, Jarman Hundal and other members of Khalsa Diwan Society for their full cooperation and support.
