Last Sunday, 21 January 2024, the Medical School, in collaboration with Pantheo Eye Center, embarked on a mission of vision and care. The destination was Doros village, nestled in the mountains of the Limassol district. The mission was to provide comprehensive eye examinations to the villagers, many of whom had limited access to healthcare services.
Leading the eye-clinic expedition were Pantheo Eye Center Ophthalmologists Theodoros Potamitis and Katia Papastavrou, together with ophthalmologist Katerina Lazari and ophthalmologist in training Neophytos Michael. Accompanying them were 18 medical student volunteers, each eager to apply their knowledge and make a meaningful difference in the lives of the village inhabitants.
As the mobile eye clinic settled in the heart of Doros, the team was warmly greeted by Mr Andreas Panagides, the president of the community council. His welcome was not just a formality but a testament to the village’s appreciation and eagerness for the services being offered. The day was bustling with activity as villagers from Doros and its surroundings gathered, and by noon, a total of 38 inhabitants had their eyes examined, their vision stories heard, and their concerns addressed with compassion and professionalism.
