An eye check up camp for students of Green Valley Educational Institute was organised here today by Sharp Sight eye hospital for early detection and correction of visual problems.

On Thursday, eye sight and other parameters were checked in over 100 students, aged between 14-16 years  at GVEI. The camp was organized by the school administration in collaboration with Sharp Sight eye hospital in a bid to detect visual impairments early.

Speaking about the event chairman GVEI said, “We all know that if eye problems are detected early in children, there is a better chance of correction and complete treatment.” He said that GVEI will continue to hold more of such camps in future to have a holistic healthcare for them.

A large number of teachers also got their eyes checked.

School administration said that children, due to their increased exposure to mobile phones, television and other gadgets, were seen to have certain complaints such as pain in eyes, headache etc. The eye checkup camp they said was to assess their problems and then, in consultation with their parents suggest remedial measures.
