Seeing SundayPosted: January 29, 2012
Today I volunteered with Nancy and Jennifer to measure, label, and bag prescription eyeglasses. Approximately 4,000 pairs will be sent to Vietnam in March and the recipients will be seeing clearly – many, for the first time ever. Donations were collected by the Lion’s Club International and volunteers (including optometrists and eye surgeons) from this group coordinated today’s effort and the trip they’ll take this spring.
Each pair was first measured and its prescription was written on a slip of paper (or, with some of the machines, printed automatically).
The bags of glasses were divided into nearsighted (“-“) and farsighted (“+”):
And then further divided by prescription number:
We brought sexy back today….
In all seriousness, though….we had fun modeling, but these glasses will do a world of good for those a world away. It was a wonderful way to spend a Sunday.
Hope your week kicks off great!
