The Amdo Eye Hospital (Qinghai Woeser Cataract Treatment Centre) opened in 2010, after six years of fund raising by the FPMT. The Centre is now providing quality eye care to the region. In 2012 over 578 eye surgeries were performed.
The scope of this project has therefore been expanded to include:
- building a new hospital in a remote area of Tibet where there is now hardly any access to essential health services.
- sponsoring outreach microsurgery eye camps in remote areas on Tibet and Nepal. Smaller scale remote eye camps can offer up to 30-35 eye surgeries and may take place as often as every three or four months. A large scale camp has the potential to provide for 500-700 surgeries.
- sponsoring medically related projects for Tibetan refugees in India and Nepal (most recently the Tashi Lhunpo Health Care
