By Keren Anne Bernadas

NAGA CITY --- A total of 1,513 of this city’s residents and other adjoining municipalities in Camarines Sur province received free eye checkup on the weekends of Feb. 4 and 5, in an event center in Brgy. Sta. Cruz.

Today, Feb. 6 until Friday, Feb. 10, around 500 patients with cataract are set to receive free operation at the City Health Office II.

These health activities form part of the city’s government health program called Operasyon Klaro.

City Events Protocol and Public Information Officer Allen Reondanga said that the program has two main objectives. First is to provide aid to residents who are suffering from eye conditions and second, is to decrease the number of persons with disabilities in the city.

The patients who availed free checkup consists of: 172 from Barangays Sta. Cruz, 127 from Triangulo, 65 from Liboton, 77 from Mabolo, 215 from Pacol, 58 from Peñafrancia, 86 from Tabuco, 84 from Sabang, 94 from San Felipe, 21 from San Isidro, and 52 from Tinago.

In addition, about 458 patients who received the same health service reside in municipalities which are members of the Metro Naga Development Council (MNDC).

“I hope for him to be able to see again because his cataract is an obstacle for him to live in a daily basis,” a wife said who was waiting for his 80-year old husband who was currently undergoing operation.

Edgardo Velardo, 75 years old, expressed his gratefulness to Mayor Nelson Legacion for the opportunity to be given free health service.

The Operation Klaro program of the Naga City government is in coordination with the MNDC, Persons with Disability Affairs Office, Philippine Medical Association, City Health Office, Ateneo de Naga University (ADNU) College of Nursing, Himalayan Cataract Project, International Academy of Medical Specialists Inc., Lemon Residences, Happy Souls and the ADNU High School Batch 1990.
