Eye care costs

The Northern Advocate - - Opinion -

How come the Fred Hol­lows Foun­da­tion can fund a cataract re­place­ment op­er­a­tion for a $25 do­na­tion when the same op­er­a­tion in New Zea­land costs more like $2500 for those who can­not af­ford to wait on the pub­lic wait­ing list. There are peo­ple who are un­able to ful­fil use­ful roles and work due to the fact that they have been de­clared “le­gally blind” and are no longer able to drive.
