Kirinyaga Governor Anne Waiguru undergoes eye check-up at the newly opened eye unit at Kerugoya Referral Hospital in Kirinyaga County on September 5, 2018.
Eye patients from Kirinyaga County will no longer have to travel to Nairobi for services following the opening of an eye unit.
Governor Anne Waiguru on Wednesday officially opened the unit at Kerugoya Level Four Hospital.
It was constructed by a Canadian organisation through funds from Standard Chartered.
This is part of an expansion plan that seeks to elevate the hospital to a referral hospital status.
The unit will provide eye check-up, evisceration, corneal repair and cataract surgeries among other specialised treatments.
