Free eye examinations for blue collar staff
The Easa Saleh Al Gurg Group LLC (ESAG) is conducting free eye check-ups for blue collar staff at their staff accommodation. The check-ups are being conducted by a dedicated team from Vision Centre under the aegis of Noor Dubai Foundation which runs the mobile eye clinic sponsored by the Roads and Transport Authority. This charitable initiative is being held under the supervision of His Excellency Engineer Essa Al Haj Al Maidoor, the Director-General of the Dubai Health Authority (DHA). More than 100 staff have already been examined and free eye glasses are also being provided by the Centre to those with an immediate need of vision correction.
According to Abdulla Al Gurg, Group General Manager, ESAG, “Generally blue collar staff may ignore signs that their eyesight is deteriorating for fear of having to pay for examinations themselves. Through this initiative the Group hopes to increase awareness of the benefits of having regular examinations and the importance of taking care of eye problems.”
