Commercial Bank donates Slit Lamp to National Eye Hospital

The CSR Trust of Commercial Bank of Ceylon recently donated a Slit Lamp to the National Eye Hospital as part of the Bank’s CSR initiatives in the sphere of Health.

The Slit Lamp facilitates an examination of the frontal structures and posterior segment of the human eye, including the eyelid, sclera, conjunctiva, iris, natural crystalline lens, and cornea. The binocular Slit Lamp examination provides a stereoscopic magnified view of the eye structures in detail, enabling anatomical diagnoses to be made for a variety of eye conditions.

According to hospital authorities, a daily patient turnout of around 200 is recorded at the eye clinic where the Slit Lamp is installed.

Other CSR initiatives of the Bank include its main activity of donating IT Laboratories to schools, awarding scholarships to undergraduates, assistance to war heroes, preserving cultural heritage and other regional CSR Events.
