Screening program in Uzbekistan
Tashkent is the capital and largest city of Uzbekistan with a population in 2018 of 2,485,900. It is located in the north-east of the country, close to the Kazakhstan border.
Last week, in collaboration with our partner Глазная клиника Saif-Optima, we performed a screening program at School 166 (Школа 166 города Ташкента).
It is incredible to consider that with one Kaleidos it took just 3 hours to perform 241 kids. Was so heartwarming to see all these cute children go ahead, one after the other, getting the test.
We thank our partner, Saf-Optima and the school leaders for the perfect organization. Once we were ready to start the screening program, they had settled the classes and scheduled exactly the spot for all the young students.
Adaptica is involved directly and through its partners or NGOs in screening programs all over the world. We believe it is important to provide accurate, portable, friendly equipment. Kaleidos allows to do that: it is a resilient and long-lasting battery instrument that works perfectly in any light condition. Eye care operators do love it!
