Nearly 200 people were screened at the eye camp organised by SYMA on Independence Day, where M. Murali, proprietor of Shree Krishna Sweets hoisted the flag and inaugurated the camp at Sri Seervi Samaj Bhavan.
Twenty five persons were prescribed spectacles, which will be given free by the Association in memory of its member Raghavan, who died three years ago. Patients detected with eye problems requiring surgical treatment for cataract were taken to Pammal Sankara Eye Hospital.
For more than 10 years now, SYMA has been conducting the camp.
This time, it was organised in association with Pammal Sri Sankara Eye Hospital, Lions Club of Chennai Venus, Sri Kanchikamakoti Sankara Medical Trust and Seervi Samaj.
Secretary S. Sampathkumar welcomed the gathering and spoke about the various activities of the Association.
CEO Babu, vice-president Seshadri and treasurer M. K. Sridharan spoke. The camp was coordinated by M.A. Sadagopan.
