Wacker Metroark Chemicals Pvt. Ltd. (WMC), a joint venture between WACKER and Indian silicone manufacturer Metroark, has been holding Health & Eye Camps once or twice per year since 2008. At this event at the end of last year, some 600 men and women from neighboring communities – most of whom were impoverished – had their eyes tested and underwent a health check free of charge. After conducting the tests, the eye specialists gave 410 participants prescriptions for glasses and 71 people referrals to hospital for cataract surgery. Cataracts occur particularly frequently in developing countries due to malnutrition or cooking on an open hearth, which is common there.
