This year I had an opportunity to participate in a life changing experience.
I ventured to Nicaragua with a group from Florida to join VOSH (Volunteer Optometric Services to Humanity) on a Third World Eyecare Mission.
I was able to give the gift of sight to many people who have never experienced good vision. That was an amazing feeling to take part in helping people who are a lot less fortunate then you.
I would like to take the opportunity to thank the community for their generous donations of used glasses that were used as a part of a Third World Eye Care Mission to Nicaragua this May. The amount of glasses that came pouring in exceeded any amount we had hoped for.
The eyeglass collection is an ongoing project at Pacific eyeDoctors so if you still have used glasses it is not too late to donate them. Sunglasses, both regular and prescription are in high demand.
VOSH is dependant on the donation of used glasses to continue missions like this one all over the world.
Thank you Dr. Judy Schnarr for giving me the opportunity to participate in this life changing experience. I look forward to participating in other eyecare missions through VOSH in the future.
