World Sight Day 2019The Georgetown Public Hospital Corporation (GPHC) will be offering a number of services to the public, free of cost, in observance of World Sight Day 2019.On October 10, 2019, Guyana will observe World Sight Day – an international day of awareness observed annually on the second Thursday of October to focus attention on the global issue of eye health. This year, the theme is “Vision First” – a call to nations to ensure that everyone has access to affordable eye care.For the past six years, the GPHC Department of Ophthalmology has been spearheading World Sight Day activities in Guyana with various activities being done over the years to promote vision health education and awareness.There will be free eye testing at the GPHC’s Eye Clinic on October 10, 2019 from 10:00h to 14:00h. Patients will have free access to the clinic and can walk into the clinic to have their eyes tested for glaucoma, cataract, refractive errors, diabetic retinopathy and other eye diseases.The Diabetic Retinopathy Centre will also be open on that day. Through collaboration with the World Diabetes Foundation and Orbis International, the Diabetic Eye Centre was established to allow persons with diabetes to undergo free screening tests to detect early diabetic eye disease (diabetic retinopathy) before it proceeds to cause permanent blindness.The screening on World Sight Day will be done by the staff of the Department of Ophthalmology including Ophthalmologists, Optometrists, doctors, and nurses of the GPHC Eye Clinic. Screening will also be done at the Vision Centre, located in the GPHC compound.Additionally, the GPHC will be hosting a free eye testing activity at the Mattai’s Supermarket on Water Street, Georgetown from 10:00h to 14:00h on the same day.A booth and screening area will be set up at the entrance of the supermarket where members of the public will have free access to have their eyes tested for glaucoma, cataract, refractive errors, diabetic retinopathy and other eye diseases.

Early screening prevents blindness from diabetes. Laser treatment for diabetic retinopathy is now available free of charge at the GPHC and patients can prevent blindness by undergoing early screening.Local optometrists and optical shops are also expected to be involved in eye screening activities at various locations in Georgetown. The GPHC is also planning to collaborate with the Lions Club in conducting a free vision screening exercise. The University of Guyana School of Optometry also conducts various commemorative activities on campus.World Sight Day is coordinated by the International Agency for the Prevention of Blindness (IAPB).World Sight Day became an official IAPB event in the year 2000, and has been marked in many different ways in countries around the world each year since then. It is a focal advocacy and PR event for IAPB and its members and partners each year, highlighting the fact that 75 per cent of blindness is avoidable (ie preventable and/or treatable) – three out of four people have avoidable visual impairment.

(PHOTO/AGENCIES)ENTEBBE – After losing both of their games at the 2019 COSAFA Cup in South Africa, the Uganda Cranes squad have arrived back in the country on Thursday, June 6th.The team of 20 players and 8 officials touched down at Entebbe Airport in the afternoon.Upon arrival, Vipers striker Dan Sserunkuma who scored Uganda’s only goal in COSAFA spoke to the media and assured the team had a great experience in South Africa.Sserunkuma (R) scored Uganda’s only goal in South Africa.“It was a great experience because the side featured many new players in the National team setup, said Sserunkuma.“All the teams we played were much organised and we learnt a lot in those two games.“The playing surface was very different to the ones we are used to. Next time shall play better so that we get good results.Uganda lost 3-2 on penalties after a 0-0 draw in normal time, on Saturday. The loss saw them fall into the Plate competition where they would take on South Africa the following Tuesday.Against the Bafafa Bafana, it was a similar outcome, drawing 1-1 in regular time before losing 4-2 in the shout-outs.After a goalless first half, Dan Sserunkuma temporary put Uganda ahead at the start of the second before South Africa equalized with 17 minutes to play.In both games, the Cranes missed several opportunities to win, something head coach Abdallah Mubiru attributed to lack of luck.“We were unlucky to bow out in the two matches played, said Mubiru.“The matches played were promising although we still have to perfect use of the ball in the final third.Mubiru speaks to the media on the COSAFA Cranes arrival.The team that featured in South Africa is highly anticipated to be the one that takes on South Sudan in the upcoming CHAN qualifiers.Players:Goalkeepers: Charles Lukwago (KCCA FC) and James Alitho (URA FC)Defenders: Paul Patrick Mbowa (URA FC), Paul Willa (Police), Mustafa Kizza (KCCA FC), John Revita (Express FC), Isaac Isinde(Kirinya-Jinja S.S), Hassan Musana (KCCA FC), Musitafa Mujuzi (Proline FC).Midfielders: Bright Anukani (Proline), Muzamiru Mutyaba (KCCA FC), Shafik Kuchi Kagimu (URA FC), Nicholas Kasozi (KCCA FC), Allan Kayiwa (Tooro United FC), Paul Mucureezi (Mbarara City FC), Michael Birungi Komunda (Express)Forwards: Daniel Isiagi Opolot (Al Nasir, Egypt), Juma Balinya (Police FC), Nelson Senkatuka (right Stars FC), Dan Muzeyi Serunkuuma (Vipers SC)Team Officials:–Leader of Delegation: Richard Ochom–Head Coach: Abdallah Mubiru–Assistant Coach: Charles Livingstone Mbabazi–FUFA Delegate (Kampala Region): Robert Serunjogi–Team Doctor: Emmanuel Nakabago–Equipment manager: Frank Bumpejje–Media Officer: Lawrence BwanikaComments
