During its first 3 months, Parker treated 1061 P patients, of whom 1020 (96.1%) had ocular illnesses. Since then, the Ophthalmic Hos- pital in Canton has become a comprehensive institution that is affiliated with Sun Yat-sen Univer- sity and is one of the largest hospitals in China. In 1965, the Department of Ophthalmology, which originally employed only 2 ophthalmologists, expanded to become an ophthalmic hospital. In 1983, it joined the Eye Research Institute and the Office of Prevention of Blindness to form the Zhong- shan Ophthalmic Center. The center currently employs nearly 800 staff members and provides care to more than 500 000 patients annually.
