Look and See
The “Look and See” programme is designed to treat elderly people suffering from one of the most widespread conditions associated with age – cataracts. This aid will target the most vulnerable categories of senior citizens: those living in remote areas with the most difficult access to hi-tech medical assistance.
We wish to improve the quality of life elderly people by returning their vision through cataract surgery, enabling them to lead a more meaningful, independent and dignified life.
The priority area of the programme in 2011-2012 has been the Ivanovo oblast.
In 2011 154 people received support for one or if needed two operations (169 operations in total) for the amount of RUR 2 820 000 (appr. USD 95 000).
