Eye care work at Kuluva Hospital run smoothly throughout the year with daily ophthalmologic reviews and assessments with quarterly Ophthalmic surgical camps. Over the course of the years, Dr. Keith Waddell has regularly visited the Hospital to perform surgeries at a subsidized cost. Many of the local staff have received trainings and mentorship from this renowed eye surgeon.
The eye department of Kuluva Hospital offers both outreach and static eye services to the communities within Uganda and abroad where we receive patients from neighboring countries like South Sudan and Democratic Republic of Congo.
