February 2015

VOSH-KY just returned from Guatemala.  We had another successful trip.

We had a eyeglass team of 12 with 3 ODs.  We worked adjucted to a surgery to a surgery team which I recruited a few years ago. They did about 42 surgeries.  They don’t have an exact count as they are awaiting results of post op to yet be sent as people recover.  Their best guess is that 1/2 were cataract and the other pterygium.

The eyeglass team saw 1178 people.  It was impossible to say how many glasses were dispensed as we had to write a number of Rx’s to be filled locally (we gave them frames) as the showed strong astigmatic corrections and those were not in our extensive collection.
