Clinic Blog: 2012 India 3 Clinic Blog
October 12, 2012
Today is our last day at Clinic 1. Dr. Dave told us that there is an extremely rare condition called Acute Angle Closure Glaucoma which occurs in only one of many thousands of people. But this week they saw three people with the condition! They were able to treat two with medication, and the third was having surgery by the time we left the clinic on the last day!
Today we saw 566 people, bringing our total for the week to 2,858. After the last patient was through, we packed up all the glasses and equipment, and loaded it all on a truck to go to our next clinic site. Then we let the kids chose a gift, and made sure all of the adult volunteers had a pair of sunglasses. Day 4 ended with a closing ceremony. We were each presented with a colorful turban, and Scott presented the One Sight awards to the clinic organizers. Finally, we posed for pictures with the kids who helped all week, then headed to the bus for our last trip on these roads. Can’t wait to see what next week’s travel is like!!
