The Director of the Eye Hospital in Tripoli/ Head of the Corneal Transplant Authority, Rania Al-Khawja, has disclosed plans to dispatch a medical team to Zliten to conduct corneal transplant surgeries.

Al-Khawja said the doctors would carry out 20 corneal transplant operations in Zliten during their visit in the coming days.

A few days ago, the Eye Hospital deployed a convoy to Zuwara, in which a medical team conducted 400 surgeries that did not include corneal transplantation and provided health checks to around 1,249 patients, according to Al-Khawja.

The Eye Hospital said the conveys come within the framework of the national campaign aimed at localizing treatment inside Libya and raising the level of medical services in the country.
