On Friday 4th May, the BAPS Charities Women’s Wing organized a talk on Eye-Health Awareness at the BAPS Swaminarayan Temple, Nairobi.
The talk commenced at 7:30pm with a total of 150 ladies in attendance. The main speaker, Dr Mona Patel, a renowned ophthalmologist in Ahmedabad, pursues her Fellowship degree in Canada. She successfully runs 2 high end clinics which are popularly known for being the only Binocular Vision Therapy institutes in the country.
Dr Mona Patel talked about how it’s easy to neglect your eyes because they rarely hurt when there’s a problem. Preventative care can avoid a myriad of problems in the future. Regular eye checkups should form part of our health schedule.
After the talks she answered various questions presented by the audience. This was followed by a dinner enjoyed by all.
BAPS Charities Women Wing continually strives to spread awareness for the health and wellness of women.
