Kootenay Lake Hospital is the only hospital in the Kootenay Boundary that offers Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT). The OCT Machine provides non-invasive imaging that aids in the diagnosis and treatment of glaucoma, diabetic eye disease, and retinal diseases such as macular degeneration. Your donation to the Light-Up the Hospital! campaign will help us purchase an OCT Machine for the Ophthalmology Clinic at Kootenay Lake Hospital. Your support for this fundraiser will mean that every year 2,500 to 3,000 patients in the West Kootenay region will receive this test at no cost, and their eyes won’t have to look elsewhere for this valuable service. Any funds raised in excess of our goal will be directed to the purchase of other priority medical equipment for Kootenay Lake Hospital.
