The mission has been successful and we would like to see more of it,” he noted.Dr. Tufton said he welcomes the collaboration with the Chinese Government to support this area of healthcare.“Eye care is a significant area in Jamaica. It is typically underserved. We are moving to sharpen the policy and improve the focus to ensure greater prevention and buildout capacity for curative measures,” he said. Dr. Tufton said the collaboration has had several other positive results in shared knowledge and information between local and international medical teams.Retiree, Jo-Anne Bromfield, who had her surgery on April 10, said the experience was a positive one. “It was good. Thanks be to the Lord. I can see properly now,” she toldJIS News.Miguel Bradley, who also received the surgery on his right eye, said he can already see positive results from the procedure.“Things are brighter. I can see clearly. Before I had foggy vision, now I can see crystal clear,” he said.To date, 1,000 persons have been screened and 600 selected for surgery. In addition to the surgeries, the mission has also donated medical equipment to KPH, and offer training to the nurses and doctors.This is Bright Journey’s second visit to Jamaica.
