Efforts by the Edo State Chapter of the Nigerian Optometric Association to Combat Quackery and Fraudulent NGOs

The Edo State Chapter of the Nigerian Optometric Association (NOA) is taking a strong stance against quackery and fraudulent Non-Governmental Organisations (NGOs) that exploit the optometry profession for fraudulent purposes. Led by Dr. Charles Eguavoen, the State chairman of the association, they are calling for renewed efforts to combat these issues and ensure the provision of genuine, life-changing eye care [1].

Fighting Quackery:

  • The NOA is determined to wage a relentless war against quackery within the eye care sector [1].
  • Fake eye doctors are known to roam from one healthcare center, church, community, or school to another, endangering the lives and vision of citizens [1].
  • The association aims to dismantle the web of fake and fraudulent NGOs that deceive the masses with empty promises [1].
  • These deceptive entities offer faulty spectacle and drug prescriptions without proper treatment follow-up, putting vulnerable individuals at risk [1].
  • The NOA’s mission is to expose these charades and ensure that people receive genuine, life-changing eye care [1].

Collaboration and Support:

  • The NOA is calling on the Edo State Primary Health Care Development Agency to employ more optometrists, as primary eye care falls within primary health care and having optometrists in primary health centers would help reduce blindness in the state [1].
  • The association commends Governor Godwin Obaseki for his support for the optometry profession and the recent deployment of an optometrist to the Ministry of Health [1].
