Eye First Aid

If something gets into your eye, such as sand or dust, do not rub your eye. Wash your eye with water to get the object out. If your eye gets hit by a ball or a fist, put cold cloths on your eye for 15 minutes. This will make the swelling go down and reduce pain. You should also go to the doctor.

Dr. Asatour Hovsepyan

Asatour Hovsepyan’s talents as a surgeon and a mechanic are ideally suited to his roles as the AECP’s Mobile Eye Hospital (MEH) Coordinator and as a part-time surgeon at the S. Malayan Ophthalmological Center (MOC).

“The most valuable thing is that the MEH ‘comes’ to the patient and offers free quality care when the patient cannot come to the doctor because of his/ her extreme poverty,” Hovsepyan explains.

He sees 10 surgical patients and 10-post surgical patients daily on the MEH. In addition, he performs cataract extraction, conjunctival and lid-plastics, and glaucoma surgery on 5-13 MEH patients daily.
