The Namibian Breweries Limited (NBL) has shown their support towards the early detection and reduction of blindness in Namibia by donating an ophthalmoscope to the Windhoek central hospital eye clinic.
Ophthalmoscope, an instrument for examining the interior structures of the eye especially the retina which costs N$27 000, was handed over on Monday.
Jacqueline Pack, senior brand manager of NBL said it is a privilege and pleasure to support the doctors who dedicate their time to fighting blindness.
“Through this donation, we hope to make a difference in the treatment to reduce blindness in our country,” she said.
Dr Sven Obholzer of the Windhoek Central Hospital eye clinic said the new equipment would assist them greatly in conducting more efficient and appropriate examinations of the posterior segment of the eye.
“We would like to thank NBL for their generous sponsorship in a quest to improve patient care for Namibian eye patients,” she said.
