Clinic Blog: 2012 Cleveland Clinic Blog
October 15, 2012
Today was the first day of clinic and it was a very sucessful one. 175 children came through our doors today to receive free eye exams. 136 of them needed prescription eyewear and 113 pairs of glasses were created onsite. The day started off a bit bumpy but by the end of the day it was smooth sailing.
Part of the reason for that was so many volunteers showed up to help make a difference. We had a group of nursing students from Case Western Reserve University who were very excited to be part of the team. They were very helpful, asked many questions and were eager to learn the ins and outs of the manufacturing process. They started out assisting in the pre-testing stations and by the days end, they were helping with the fabrication of the children's eyewear. They will be donating their time for the rest of the week.
The ophthalmic assisting students from Cuyahoga Community College were also here to help. They were accompanied by their instructor, Molly Drenen, who volunteers along with her students annually.
Looking forward to seeing what tomorrow will bring...
