April 13, 2018 -- Free medical clinic and eye surgeries have been provided by experts to cataract patients in southwest China's Tibet Autonomous Region during a three-day voluntary program jointly hosted by Shantou University and Shantou International Eye Center from south China and Chinese University of Hong Kong starting from April 8.

Due to the high altitude and strong UV rays, Tibet has a high incidence of eye diseases. Since 2014, the Shantou International Eye Center has worked with volunteer eye doctors from across  China in helping patients regain eyesight in Lhasa, Nyingchi, and Shannan.
