Annually, 3,000 cases of additional cataracts are detected in Senegal and half of them cannot be operated due to lack of resources, they explain. In addition to cataracts, they also treat other ocular pathologies such as Glaucoma and Pterygium and donations of corrective glasses are made to the population.
