Many people from Kinnaur District which, is two days drive from Palpung Sherabling Monastery, have very serious problems with their eyes largely due to lack of facilities. To this end, Palpung Munishasan Dharmachakra Sangh organized the Free Eye-Camp at the Pooh from June 3rd through June 5th, 2008. The team, headed by Dr. Rohit Sharma, the main eye surgeon, included a full medical team from the Rotary Eye Hospital Maranda in Palampur. During the three day eye camp, more than five hundred and fourteen patients where screened by doctors. In the end the camp provided 46 patients with eye operations, allocated over 160 pairs of prescription eyeglasses and also filled prescriptions for much needed medicines.
