Mektila ll Blindness Study Complete

Sight For All Visionaries Dr Stephen McGovern, Dr Megan Wood and Mr Alan Hoare conducted the Meiktila II Blindness Study which took place over four weeks in the rural Meiktila District of Myanmar.  

The study was a follow up to the first Meiktila Eye Study which was undertaken in 2005, to discover the prevalent causes of blindness in the region. 

During the study, Paediatric Ophthalmologist Dr Tin Mg Thant loaned back Sight For All donated equipment required to collect patient data. After the first research survey, sub-specialty training, equipment donations and the study that has just commenced, the full circle is complete! 

The data is currently being analysed and we will update you on the findings soon.
