Giving the gift of sight in Peru

Here's a truly inspirational experience shared by a volunteer team from North Carolina, USA who used the Folding Foropters to screen Peruvians for refractive error.

"They (the Folding Foropters) were fantastic and really helped us to identify the appropriate lens strength for our patients.  We so were very fortunate to also have 1200 pairs of glasses (of various strengths) we purchased from the Lions clubs so after diagnosis, we were able to give the person the correct glasses right then. The excitement and amazement that they (the patients) express is truly a wonder to behold. Each time we diagnose and match a person with the correct pair of eye glasses, I marvel in the moment and feel the true essence to joy.  As you know, the gift of sight opens an entirely new realm in which to experience life. I want to thank you and your team for all you’ve done to create the Folding Foropter."
