    Is your clinic prepared for the next natural disaster?


    The most prevalent problem was uncorrected refractive error. We dispensed more than 1,500 pairs of free prescription spectacles, thanks to generous donations from industry partners (VSP, Envision, Safety Rx, Essilor Foundation, Zeiss, Walmart, Eyes of Faith, Houston Eye Associates, Mann Eye Clinic, Berkeley Eye Clinic, Davis Vision), and the outstanding efforts of the optometry and optician teams.

    The ophthalmic diagnoses show the wide range of problems encountered, most of which the core medical team running the clinics could not diagnose or treat.
