Funded Cataract Surgery Scheme

Funded Cataract Surgery Scheme helps patients with financial difficulties by the way of referrals by ophthalmologists or community organizations. There are 150 elderly being benefited a year in average.

If the applicant is a 65-years-old permanent resident of Hong Kong and receiving Comprehensive Social Security Assistance (CSSA) Scheme is eligible for half-grant. If the applicant meets the above criteria and is an unaccompanied elderly person is eligible for full-grant. 

Through this subsidy program, many patients have better life experience. Some of them are even actively involved in volunteer work after the operation to extend the spirit of helping others.
