As part Efforts to reduce visually impaired problems in Lagos State gained a massive support with the kickoff of free cataract surgeries for over 100 patients in a partnership between Korean Community and Lagos State University Teaching Hospital LASUTH. Speaking on this, The Chief Medical Director of LASUTH, Prof. Wale Oke praised representatives of the Korean team when he was paid a courtesy call in his office welcoming them to Lagos and LASUTH particularly after same gesture was extended to Lagosians just last year.According to him “I am overwhelmed by your presence and good heart to give sight to patients who have cataract problems in Lagos State. You did over a hundred last year and here u is again all for free. Thank you. We are very grateful” The CMD however said LASUTH will be Oliver Twist and will therefore ask for more in the area of training for our doctors to be able to carry out surgeries in highly technical areas on our own while requesting for assistance and free procedures in other areas apart from cataract, adding that “We appreciate your support on cataract but we look forward to more in other areas of medicine and i am be ready to sponsor our doctors to understudy your expertise in this area and other areas of medical practice and I wish u will grant my request”
