One picture that I’ve attached shows the people waiting outside our clinic for their turn to be tested. The other picture shows the action inside the clinic. The patients have their short range vision tested and then their long range vision tested. Their vision is then tested by two autorefractors. With this data we then determine what prescription will be most beneficial. Carla then looks for that prescription in our database. The patients are then tested with their new glasses and have them adjusted to fit.
We helped 83 patients today, to see better. Of thse 83 we referred 5 to see an ophthalmolohist. I felt particularly sad for one patient. He was 48 years old (which seems quite young to me) and he went blind a year ago. His wife led him by the hand into and out of our clinic. We referred him to the Opthalmologist but I’m not very optimistic. However for every sad one, like this, we help many that are thrilled at their new improved vision.
