Photo Gallery: MEI's diabetic eye care facility opening

Aside from the machines, the MEI has already been doing
surgeries to remove cataracts.


Dr. Khorram explains how the new machines
will help them curb the rising glaucoma and other eye diseases
that typically come with diabetes.

The new machines allow MEI to see deep recesses of the eye
which were previously unseen by less powerful cameras.

DPH's Kevin Villagomez welcomes the new diabetic eye care facility
as a big boost to healthcare in the islands.


Dr. Mark Robertson poses by the newly acquired machine.


MEI CEO Russ Quinn along with two MEI staff
demonstrate how the new machine work.


MP publisher Ed Propst and Saipan Mayor's Office PIO Tony Benavente listen
to Russ Quinn as he explains the new diabetic eye care machines.
In the foreground, MVA's Jerry Tan and CHC's Dr. Brostrom listen intently.
