The eye department at the hospital is about to take the next big step. The support of the Swiss Rotary Club of Emmen has made it possible to purchase two long-awaited pieces of equipment and to expand a room into an eye operating theatre. A special ultrasound device and an automatic system for determining the physical parameters of the eye will make it easier to care for eye patients in the future, especially when it becomes necessary to insert an artificial lens. The orders were placed recently and work will start shortly.
