One of the many services performed on our medical missions is the Eye Clinic. On our last mission to Puerto Plata, Dominican Republic, the Eye Clinic saw over 1,700 patients, performed eye exams and dispensed glasses. The Eye Clinic is an on-going effort at the mission headquarters in Elmwood Industrial Park. There we receive boxes of glasses - donated primarily by the Lions Club, as well as other charities and individuals.

At the headquarters we have a pair of lens meters where we measure the glasses for their prescription. During the year we’ll measure and label thousands of glasses. We then sort the glasses by their prescription, box them and ship them to the mission location.

At the mission location we set up the clinic. We bring several autorefractors which measure the patient’s eyes and prints their prescription. From there the patient goes to a volunteer who will find the glasses that best match the patient’s prescription. The great reward is when the patient puts on the glasses and emits a huge grin and a thumbs-up.

“Deliver medical relief and expertise to the underprivileged population of the world, and respond to local needs, through services, treatment, and supplies, in a manner that respects the dignity and self-esteem of program recipients and volunteers.”
