Mount Lotus Eye and ENT Hospitals, the newest hospital of its kind in Sri Lanka, successfully carried out its first-ever free health camp at the hospital premises in Mount Lavinia recently to mark the official inauguration of the hospital late last year.
During the all-day health camp hundreds of patients visited the hospital to get their eyes and hearing checked from the hospital’s experienced healthcare professionals. In addition to basic eye and hearing tests, the Mount Lotus team also tested patients’ blood sugar, blood pressure, and Body Mass Index (BMI) and subsequently provided medical advice as to how to live a healthier lifestyle. Special discounts were also given to all patients for spectacles and hearing devices. Given the pandemic in the country, the health camp was held in accordance with the COVID-19 health guidelines stipulated by the authorities.
