Seeing benefits from proactive eye-care

A talk on maintaining optimal eye health was held for Baiduri Bank employees at the bank’s headquarters yesterday, in conjunction with World Sight Day.

The event, organised by the bank as part of its employee wellness programme, saw ophthalmologist Dr Hajah Helena Hurairah from the Ministry of Health share standard practices in vision care to some 60 bank employees.

The session emphasised the importance of regular eye checkups and raised awareness on early signs of eye conditions. Participants also had the opportunity to engage with a specialist for vision screening and workplace ergonomics.

Deputy Head of Group Human Resources at Baiduri Bank Chiam Chin Huei said, “Our vision plays a fundamental role in the quality of life both at work and at home.

“Gaining an essential awareness of our sight will help to detect and prevent any vision related diseases or complications.”
