Dr Bibhuti Kashyap begins research in Jharkhand

Tuesday, 02 July 2019 | PNS | Ranchi

Free diabetic retinopathy research and eye checkup camps was organised at Dr Sanjay Rai’s diabetes clinic and SS High School Ormanjhi under the aegis of All India Ophthalmological Society, Jharkhand Ophthalmological Society and Kashyap memorial Eye Hospital, Ranchi on June 30 and July 01.  In the camp people, who are losing eyesight due to diabetes, were checked and those who need treatment will be treated at KMEH under the Ayushman Bharat scheme.

The tests were conducted by AIIMS, Delhi trained Retina Surgeon Dr Bibhuti Kashyap. For other eye ailments including cataract and other diseases the tests were conducted by Dr Bharti Kashyap, Dr Nidhi G. Kahyap and the team of KMEH. All those found to be suffering from cataract will be treated under Ayushman Bharat scheme at KMEH.

It was found during the research that the people from rural areas were more affected from diabetic retinopathy because they did not have control over their sugar levels. At Dr Sanjay Rai’s clinic 202 diabetic patients were tested out of which 20 per cent were affected with diabetes induced retinopathy. On Monday 207 rural patients were checked out of which 52 were found to be affected with diabetic retinopathy.

Chairman of the Scientific Committee of Jharkhand Ophthalmological Society, Dr Bharti Kashyap said that All India Ophthalmological Society has started research on diabetic retinopathy in coordination with the State Ophthalmological Societies. Under this pan India research every State has to send pictures and data of 1000 diabetic patients’ eyes to All India Ophthalmological Society. Out of these 1000 patients, two third will be from rural and far off areas and one third will be urban diabetic patients.     

Dr Bibhuti said that he is happy that he started the research from Ranchi and Ormanjhi. After the completion of the research diabetes patients will be immensely benefitted by the same. The management protocol based on the research will be beneficial for the patients because it is totally based on the people of the country. Most of the protocols followed in the country are made after research on foreign nationals, he added.
