Looking for Glasses in All the Right Places
By Eye Physicians and Surgeons, P.A. on February 27, 2017
It is that time of year again - time for a fourth trip to Haiti as a medical mission adventure. The citizens of Haiti are in need of eye care and Dr. Paula Ko had arranged in previous years to make this trip each April. However, this year one of her trusted technicians, Suzy Smith, will go in her place and perform eye screenings at remote villages. Screenings will encompass glaucoma and cataracts among other maladies. In support of this humanitarian effort, Eye Physicians and Surgeons is collecting used eye glasses to be sent to Haiti with Suzy. We will have a collection box in our lobby to receive your used eye glasses. The box will be clearly marked for this mission trip.
Suzy is extremely excited about this opportunity and feels honored to go in Dr. Ko's place. To add to this positive experience for Suzy, her adult son James will be accompanying her!
