Punjas Staff Get Top Eye Check By Experts

Employees of one of Fiji’s biggest manufacturing companies, Punjas, were given eye-checkups and for those who needed it, treatment, by one of the best eye institutes in the region, recently.

Eye Institute is New Zealand’s leading provider of eye surgery and were in Lautoka last week, at the invitation of a director, Jagdish Punja, to give the workers a free check-up.

The employees took the opportunity to have their eyes examined by experts who then administered appropriate treatment or prescriptions.

For many years, one of the Eye Institute’s leading surgeons, Dr Peter Hadden, has been working closely with local Fijian Ophthalmologists and conducting volunteer work in Fiji.

“We are delighted to be able to assist the employees of Punjas with their eye health,” Dr Hadden said.

The Eye Institute team will work with local Ophthalmologists to create a seamless service for employees of any other company, including people with private health insurance who want to access some of the best eye care in the world.

Based on what Dr Hadden and his team had seen so far with staff members from Punjas there was no need for concern.

Punjas group marketing executive Gopal Jhadav said Punjas was delighted to have experts from Eye Institute carry out screening checks on their employees.
