(CabinetNotes)The Cabinet invited a Medical Team from Trinidad, whose function has been to remove cataracts from the eyes of primarily elderly citizens, whose eyesight has been impaired by the growth of these scales over the pupil of the eye. The team has trained several nurses and other professionals in preparing patients, participating in the operations, and in the post-operative care of the patients. The team reported that Antigua and Barbuda’s Cataract Surgical Rate is in the top three in our Caribbean. (Suriname and Barbados occupy 1st and 2nd position, respectively). The Rate is determined by 4,000 cataract operations per one million population. In Antigua and Barbuda’s case, that would be 400 surgeries per one hundred thousand population. A video of both nurses and patients expressing great satisfaction was shared with the Cabinet Members. It was agreed that the video would be aired on National Television.
