Presentation of Ophthalmology Equipment
The Friends at Broomfield Hospital donate £6,000 probe to the Ophthalmology Department.
The Friends at Broomfield Hospital have kindly donated a £6,000 probe to the Ophthalmology Department. The probe allows clinicians to establish a clear, full view of the eye and replaces the older model which recently stopped functioning.
It can be used for patients with conditions such as diabetes, cataracts and bleeding of the retina.
Mr Ajay Sinha, joint clinical lead and retinal consultant, thanked the Friends at Broomfield Hospital and said: “If there has been bleeding in the eye we need to be able to look in and see what is happening.
“It has a lot of applications for us – it is a front line piece of kit and something that any modern eye department can’t be without.”
The Friends at Broomfield Hospital formally presented the equipment to the department on Monday, December 5.
