President Maureen announced that so far, no members had registered for the District Assembly which would be held in Shatin on the 28/4. Some members then volunteered – PP Nic, Rotarian Suzie and Rotarian Eva.

Prof. Swann’s message was clear ¾ eye examination is not just for spectacles but also to check ocular health. He presented cases of common problems with the retina (inner layer of the eyeball), association between some systemic disease, eg. diabetes, and the eye. He then finished with UV radiation; how sunshine can affect eye health and skin.

PP Ramesh gave a vote of thanks to Prof. Swann for this very interesting and informative talk on behalf of members. President Maureen proposed a Diabetic Testing and breakfast event later in the year.
