    Mzee wangu (74) ambaye late mwaka jana around October alikuwa diagnosed with NIDDM (Non-Insulin Dependent Diabetes Mellitus) today had his eyes examined at KCMC and lucky he hasn't got diabetic retinopathy but has well developed 'cataracts' in both eyes and they proposed a non-invasive op (without cutting) using laser. The procedure costs 500,000/- for each eye.

    I was wondering whether there another hospital in TZA where this procedure is performed.

    Your info is highly appreciated

    Unaweza kutoa cataracts bila cutting? Cataract inatolewa kwa kubadilisha lenzi, jicho linakatwa lenzi inatolewa them wanaweka artificial lens.
