AMDA Ophthalmologist and Cataract Mission in Mongolia 2010


From June 23rd to July 1st, AMDA Headquarters in collaboration with Mongolian Ophthalmologist Society held "AMDA Ophthalmologist and Cataract Mission in Mongolia 2010" in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia. Having an internationally acclaimed Japanese optician as a lecturer, a six-day workshop was aimed at educating the ophthalmologists from both the capital and regional parts of Mongolia in sharing the expertise according to their needs.

The workshop was attended by as many as 120 ophthalmologists from University of Ulaanbaatar and those from regional areas as far as 1,500km away from the capital. During the workshop, the lectures were held at local medical institutions and opticians where relevant ophthalmological practices and glasses-adjustment techniques were demonstrated. The scenes were televised and received a lot of positive feedback that eventually led the viewers to visit the actual opticians.

At the Third National Hospital of Mongolia, cataract surgeries were conducted on twenty four patients under AMDA's assistance. All of the patients were directly or indirectly connected with the Battle of Khalkhin-Gol (Nomohan Incident) in 1939, known as the Soviet-Japan border war. Inherited from 2006's AMDA Soul and Medicine Programme (ASMP) in Mongolia, the attempt was part of AMDA's commitments in learning from past tragedies and make use of it for the realization of peaceful world.

AMDA also donated disposable medical equipments to Mongolian Ophthalmologist Society under the support of the companies, namely, Japan Alcon and Korean Airlines that kindly offered the provision and transportation of the goods.

The Japanese lecturer was very much impressed by the avidness and enthusiasm of Mongolian doctors and sought light in the future of Mongolian ophthalmologic scene.

Ended with great success, another workshop is already scheduled in coming August as a follow-up; the preparation for this year's ASMP is also underway.
