GX Foundation has successfully completed 402 cataract surgeries in Vientiane, Laos. This was achieved in partnership with the Ministry of Health of Lao PDR, and a 10-person expert medical team from Guangxi Autonomous Region of China. Surgery is conducted on board two Mobile Eye Treatment Centres (METC), which are fully equipped to perform cataract surgery on a patient in 20 minutes. We sincerely thank the Ministry of Health, Vientiane 103 Military Hospital, the Health Commission of Guangxi Autonomous Region, the Asian Foundation for the Prevention of Blindness, and other partners for their contributions to our mission to restore vision to the elderly people of Laos!
