Bangladesh child

In Bangladesh, Foresight helped fund and build an Eye Hospital in Chittagong and Institute of Community Ophthalmology. This facility has become a Centre of Excellence in surgery, eye care and training, not just for Bangladesh, but for other countries in the region.

In 2003, it celebrated one million sight-saving cataract operations performed with intraocular lens implants. The team of local doctors and nurses performing these operations have been trained through Foresight initiated programs.
