Tabare Vazquez, uruguayan President thanks to the Cuban's  Ophthalmological Cooperation
According to Prensa Latina news agency, during a ceremony held in Paso de los Toros, a central locality in Uruguay, Vazquez said: "we have a top level ophthalmological center thanks to the cooperation of our Cuban brothers and sisters and the government of the island."

The Hospital of the Eyes, as Uruguayans call it, was inaugurated last November by President Vazquez. On that occasion, after touring the center, the Uruguayan leader said: "Im captivated. I feel like taking off my suit, putting on a white coat and coming to work here."

The center has the capacity to treat five thousand patients per year and it is the result of a bilateral accord signed by Cuba and Uruguay in 2007.
