Launch Ceremony cum Media Tour


Cataract is a leading cause of blindness and visual impairment in Hong Kong. The waiting time for new case appointment booking for specialist outpatient services in ophthalmology in the Hospital Authority was up to 219 weeks (1 October 2022 to 30 September 2023 – 90th percentile). Patients diagnosed with cataract typically encounter an average waiting period of another one to two years for their surgery. With a generous donation from TPK Kwok Family Charitable Fund, HKUMed Department of Ophthalmology launches the Mr. & Mrs. Thomas Kwok Charity Cataract Surgery and Research Programme, with a goal to provide free cataract surgery and pre- and post-operative ophthalmic consultation to over 500 underprivileged Hong Kong residents at the HKU Eye Centre (7/F, Marina 8, Wong Chuk Hang). 250 patients will be selected from those with the most extended cataract surgery wait time currently on list in the teaching hospitals of HKU – Grantham Hospital and Queen Mary Hospital under the Hospital Authority. Expenses associated with the cataract surgery, encompassing diagnostic tests and prescribed medications, will be fully covered at no cost to the patients.
