Corneas from USA brighten up 12 lives after successful surgery in MTH

On May 2, 2017, Madinah Teaching Hospital received the first consignment of 12 eye donations from United States. These eyes were in addition to the 4-6 corneas MTH receives after every three weeks from Sri Lanka. Prof Dr Aamir Ali Choudhry, Head, Department of Ophthalmology, MTH told that, ‘immediately after receiving the corneas, he and his team operated 12 blind persons in MTH for cornea transplantation. All these surgeries were done totally free of cost.’

‘If you have any patient who needs keratoplasty, kindly refer him to MTH, he further added.

These corneal donations from United States were completely sponsored by the family of Late Prof Bilqees Jamal Zafar.

Prof Bilqees Jamal Zafar was one of the most popular and revered teacher of all times. Most of our senior medical faculty members were her pupils.

The faculty and students of The University of Faisalabad pray for the blessed soul of Late Prof Bilqees Jamal Zafar. May Allah grant her highest place in Jannah. Ameen.
