Today was a short day for the students but a very productive day for us. We saw 119 kids and 80 of them needed glasses. After the school was finished, it was time to make the glasses and hurry to the rest of the schools for dispensing. After the majority of schools were dispensed, it was time to tie up all the loose ends. We have to make sure every pair of glasses are made and accounted for and prepared for delivery to the schools. We will still have 5 schools left for dispense so we will have a local team going to the schools next week. We have to clean and pack up all the pre-testing and doctor equipment and load them into the pods for pickup and clean and pack all the manufacturing equipment and load it onto EyeVan.
Everyone is working together as a team and we will be cleaned up and ready to exit the building in no time!
The clinic is sadly coming to a close. Some of our team will be departing shortly because they have earlier flights and others will stay to help clean until we are finished, so it will be time for us to say our final goodbyes...
Grand total numbers for clinic
Week 1 - 1,063 kids seen and 803 needed glasses with 26 referrals
Week 2 - 936 kids seen and 711 needed glasses with 14 referrals
TOTAL - 1,999 seen and 1,514 needed glasses with 40 referrals
Thats a 76% need, great job team!
Goodbye TEAM CLEVELAND, hope to see you again soon. Keep up all the good work with your OneSight endeavors, because every one of you make a difference!

It was a very emotional time for all at our pinning ceremony last night. This was our last dinner for us as a team and last chance to take some group pics since many of us will be departing at different times today. We went to the Hard Rock Cafe at Tower City and it was a wonderful time. Tears were flowing as many of us thanked our team leaders, other members of our team and shared our own personal stories. The end of a clinic is a bittersweet moment with mixed feelings. Even though we want to go home and see our family and friends that we miss so much, we also don’t want the clinic to come to an end either. One story that sticks out in my head is when teammate Amanda Krohn said that we are all family now. And she is right, we are!
We are all part of the OneSight family. And even those who don’t get picked for a clinic next year, you are still family. We all share a special bond that holds us together with our passions. Our passions for wanting to help people receive proper vision care and helping those obtain glasses who can’t afford them on their own.
It was very emotional for me last night so I wanted to take a moment to share my own story with you now. It came to me when Dr. Ballard was sharing the story about the little girl she had examined...
Dr. Roslyn Ballard examined a little girl yesterday who never wore glasses before. She was in a -6.00 in her one eye and -4.50 in the other. She said she had an exams before but she didn’t need them at the time. She said her grandma was an eye doctor and she would give her the exams but she had passed away this year and she was up in heaven now. And while she was telling us this story, I was thinking, was her grandma her only caretaker? Who is caring for her now and how could this be that someone missed that she needed glasses? Then I start wondering how she is doing in school? How can she see anything?
It's heartbreaking to me that we actually live in a world where children have to go without a gift that most are born with- their sight. When I think of my daily routine there's not much I can do until I put my glasses on, besides go to sleep and dream. I need them to read, use my computer at work and just to walk down the street and everything in between. One of my favorite things to do this time of year is to take walks through the parkway and look at all the trees. All the beautiful different colors as they fall to the ground. Then I wonder what it would look like without my glasses?
I graduated from Cuyahoga Community College right here in Cleveland, from the Optical Technology program and received my associate’s degree. Molly Drenen, my former instructor, helps out with this clinic every year. We were talking last week and she introduced me to one of her current students and said that I was a Tri-C alumni and I was one of her best students. Didn't really think anything of it when she said it, I did pretty good in school my whole life. But the one thing that may possibly make me different from these children is that I've always had a current pair of glasses. Now, after seeing some of these kids, it makes me wonder, would I have even graduated from high school, let alone college without my glasses?
I've worn glasses full time since I was about 7 years old, ever since my first eye exam. My parents had vision insurance and they took me to see the eye doctor every year. I had vision problems when I was younger, lazy eye and a few other problems that were pretty much corrected through glasses and a few years of vision therapy. I lack depth perception, which keeps me from wanting to drive, but it is possible for me to if I choose. Other than that I live a happy, normal life. Then I wonder, how would my life be if I didn't get that first referral from the optometrist and receive the help that I needed?
It was a big day for self-reflection and I know I wouldn't be where I am today without proper vision care. I am very appreciative to my parents for taking good care of my vision as a child because I know not every child receives the proper attention they need and deserve from their caretakers. I am also very fortunate to work for an amazing company that lets us be a huge part in restoring that gift back to these beautiful children. So thank you Luxottica and OneSight for all you've done and continue to do for us. Now instead of going to sleep and dreaming their dreams, these children will have a chance of actually fulfilling them.
Thank you team CLEVELAND, for all the memories. Thank you for all your leadership and all the new things I’ve learned from each and every one of you during these two weeks. Thank you for allowing me to be a part of this team and take the role as your media captain. I truly enjoyed writing this blog and including all your stories for everyone to share and take with them. Thank you for all our good times, Cleveland was definitely not as fun until you all arrived. I will remember my Cleveland 2012 clinic- always!!!

The clinic is winding down so it's time to be more effecient than ever. Today we saw 198 kids and 126 needed glasses. Our team members are becoming more productive as the days go by, which is amazing. Many of our team members have been working in the lab, an area that is unfamiiar to alot of them but they have learned to master the equiptment. By the looks of it, you would think they have been doing it for years. We have our great team leaders of the clinic but everyone has become a leader in some way, working as a team and sharing what they know with the rest of our group. Our volunteers have also been a major part of our success also. Without them, the clinic couldn't have possibly run as smoothly as it did- so thank you to all of you who donated your time. You are much appreciated!
There was more dispensing done today and many children are receiving their glasses, some for the first time. I was on a dispense with two of my teammates, Christa Curran and Renee Hill. And the one thing that stood out the most to me was that these children were so appreciative. They were so polite and thanked all of us. The one child that Renee dispensed to was wearing a -4.00 and didn't have glasses. She had him look at the clock with his glasses then without and repeated it again. He said, "Wow, I'm blind!"
Tonight is our team's last dinner together and pinning ceremony at The Hard Rock. Can't wait and see you all tonight.
Team Cleveland ROCKS!!!

Only a few more days until this amazing clinic comes to an end, so it's crunch time! Today we saw 260 kids and 204 of them needed glasses. We also had 7 referrals. The day was a bit bumpy at first, but after all the children were registered, it was all good. Lots of glasses were finished up today which means more teams got to go out and dispense at the schools. Everything was running so efficiently and there wasn't that much left to do so the team leads decided to let us leave early today so we can enjoy our free night. It was a beautiful and sunny day in Cleveland, perfect for walking around the town. This will be our last free night before clinic ends, so many of us wanted to hang out together and spend time with our new OneSight friends whom we've grown very close with during this clinic experience. OneSight is like a big family, people all over that share a common bond of having the desire to help those in need and help those to see!
One of our wonderful team members had fell ill and had to return home today. She received her pin at clinic today. Holly Justus, you will be missed greatly. It was a great pleasure to meet you and to have experienced this clinic with you. Feel better soon.
Enjoy your free night team! It's back to work tomorrow... so have fun because you all deserve it!!!

This was a very busy day for team Cleveland. We saw 309 kids and 251 needed eyeglasses. Even with all the students in the building the day went very smooth. One school alone was over 200 kids so we had a few extra doctors that donated their time to assist with the exams. Some team members also did more dispensing so even more schools were able to complete the whole OneSight process. I know we as a team, we have people that come up to us throughout the clinic and thank us for what we do. All the people that organize the clinic and our team lead along with our OneSight partners. Then we have our core team and all of the volunteers, and our lovely team of doctors. All of us hear some big thank yous and little thanks many times throughout the clinic experience. But some of the most important people who are a big part of this whole experience get skipped when it comes the thank yous, the teachers. If it wasn't for some of these teachers, many of the students wouldn't be able to participate in the clinic at all.
There was a very touching story that was shared by one of my team members. She had a chance to have an actual conversation with one of the teachers that had came to the clinic today and this is what she had to say...
"Everyday you need to wake up with a smile. Life is not pleasant sometimes, but a smile makes a difference to these children." Rachel is a teacher at Wilson, and the children she is speaking of are her 4th grade students. As one of the chaperones who accompanied Wilson's students at the OneSight Cleveland clinic, Rachel took the time to share the wisdom she has learned over the past thirteen years in the classroom.
"Every person has their own watering can. Whenever you meet a child, you need to share your water...share what you know. They may blossom into a beautiful flower. I know in my conscience and heart, I've watered every child I taught with love."
Rachel went on to tell me about how she provides incentives such as toys and candy for the students to motivate them to finish their homework and perform well on tests. Often, the students' families cannot afford school supplies, so Rachel admits that she digs into her own pocket to provide the essentials like pencils and paper.
"I'm not going to change. I will always give myself to these kids. They may not always appreciate it, but maybe one day they will remember when I gave them a pencil. And they will remember that I gave them this pencil after I already had given them three pencils and they lost all of them. Maybe one day they will grow up to be the type of people who will give a pencil to a child and teach that child how to write their own story."
Rachel concluded with a hand on my shoulder, a genuine thank you to all the volunteers, and a smile on her face. "When you give, life gives back. Maybe it's not right away, but one day, greatness will find each of you who are here today."
Today, in one conversation, Rachel taught me there is no such thing as a small act of kindness.

Today I was at the control desk with my teammate Stephanie Chavez and we got to interact with the children briefly. It's very fast paced but I did manage to get some pictures and funny quotes from the kids...
Matthew said, "I need glasses for far away and to read so make sure I get those and they make them right", speaking of his bifocals.
Charity said, "Miss, can I get my picture taken? My sticker doesn't have a smiley face and he got his taken", while pointing to her schoolmate.
Mykayla said, with a distraught look on her face and her hand on her hip, "That's just too long!", after telling her she would get her glasses in about 3 days or so.
Ethan asked, "These are my Oakleys, can you make sure they get my Oakleys? I love these!", as he handed me his tray. Then he asked, "Am I gonna be on Facebook?", when I asked if I could take his picture for the blog.
Many of us already know that OneSight is absolutely amazing for the work they do. That is one of the reasons why most of us register for a clinic each year and wait patiently on OneDay to see if their name made the list. We all want to be part of this team and we all want to make a difference. We all know the impact that one pair of glasses can have on child- to actually be able to see clearly, possibly for the first time. But what we may not know is what a big impact some of the teachers have on their students. Some of these children spend more hours with their teachers than they do their own families. So let's take a moment to give a big THANK YOU to all the wonderful teachers that have made a positive impact in a child's life.
Tonight the team will be holding their silent auction fundraiser and dinner. Some of the team brought some special items from home while others picked up some Cleveland memorabilia to remember this trip to Cleveland. Others created unique personalized items to remember everyone from the clinic. This should be a great night and we hope to raise lots of money for OneSight and bring us closer to our team goal.
Great job today team, see you all tonight!

The week jumped off to a great start as we welcomed the latest additions to the team. Drs. Carol Hunt, Roslyn Ballard and Tosh Hedden along with team member Loretta Hedden.We saw 177 children and 143 of them needed glasses. Everyone has seemed to find the areas that they feel comfortable working at and the flow of clinic is running seamlessly. The volume of volunteers is lower this week but we are making it work. That is the beauty of working a two-week mission, you find your comfort zone and everything starts to come naturally. After everyone is done with their area, it's straight to the lab to finish up the glasses and get them ready for dispensing. Some of the team got to dispense at the schools today. It is such a great feeling to be the one delivering the finished product that every member of our team had a part in making.
There were so many great stories that one of our team members wanted to share, here's a few...
As I was taking Williams's pupillary distance measurements, I asked him if he wore glasses. He said, "I never had glasses but my brother does. So one night when he was sleeping, I borrowed them. Everything was blurry, but everything is blurry without glasses too. I wear sunglasses and movie glasses but I hope I get real glasses today so I can see!"
As Luis ate lunch, I asked him why he had two books to read during the clinic when all of his classmates only had one. He said, "I read fast, I really like policemen too!" I responded by saying I bet he will read even faster with glasses. Luis said, "Yes, then I will read superhero fast!"
As I was taking Izabella's measurents, I saw that she had a Berenstin Bears book in her hand. I told her Berenstain Bears was my favorite book series when I was your age. What is this one about? Izabella said, "It's called Think of Those in Need. It's about giving away the extras in your closet or under your bed and giving them to those who need them more then you."
I got to dispense glasses to the little girl Kaitlyn who we first met on Day 4. She said, "I'm so excited!", right before she modeled her new look in blue for us. Her smile will shine bright in our memory of this beautiful child.

Tomorrow is going to be a big day. We have a very large group coming into the clinic and that evening we will hold our silent auction fundraiser and dinner.
Great job, let's get some rest so we can be pumped for all the excitement tomorrow will bring.
Team Cleveland, YOU ROCK!!!
October 21, 2012
This week was a wonderful success for our team so now it's time to take that well deserved break and see all what Cleveland has to offer. Some of the team went to check out the Horseshoe Casino, one of Cleveland's newest additions, which is Ohio's very first casino. Others stayed close to the hotel and visited local restaurants for some Cleveland cuisine or the Cleveland Playhouse for a concert. Many of our team members registered for group trips that we're put together by our coordinating staff. Some trips included a trip to The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, The Cleveland Museum of Natural History and the Cleveland Museum of Art. All tickets were donated to our OneSight team. OneSight is very well known in the Cleveland area because of the success of the clinic and also because of the amazing support from our OneSight partner, Ken Lanci. For more information on Ken Lanci and his work, please log onto www.kenlanci.com and prepare yourself to be inspired!!!
The OneSight team will be back to work tomorrow along with some new team members that will be joining us for the second half of clinic. I hope everyone enjoyed their free time so we can be refreshed and ready to take on week two.
Great job team, keep up the good work... Go team CLEVELAND!!!

Today was the last day of the week for clinic and the very last day for some of our team members. Today we saw 140 children and 115 needed glasses. I went on a dispense today with my teammate Christa Curran and Joeline Magoto. The two schools were JFK High School and Adlai Stevenson. My daughter, Brianna came to the high school to help assist with the dispensing. The students were very excited and appreciative to receive their new eyewear. I noticed that the highschoolers were very concerned with how cool and stylish they looked in their new specs. The younger kids' most common response was, "I can see so far now!"
We dispensed the glasses at Adlai Stevenson in the library which has very large windows and all the students walking by can see in. I walked down the hallway to give the office the copies of all the prescriptions and on my way back a little boy stopped me and said he wanted to get his glasses but they didn't call him down to the library. I asked him his name and then I checked his name on the list and it wasn't there. So I went back out and asked him if he went to the clinic with his friends and he said he did. He began to describe all the machines and the tests he got to do. Then I asked him if he chose a frame and he said no, that they said he didn't need to. So I explained to him that he probably didn't need glasses right now and he should feel lucky that his eyes are great. He said, with a sad face, "Man, I wanted some glasses." I told him when he's older he will definately need bifocals. Then a smile appeared and he said, "Bifocals, AWESOME!!!"
When we got back to clinic the day was pretty much wrapped up. Here's a story from one of our team members that she wanted to share...
"I was dispensing glasses to Ricardo, who was wearing a -8.50/-8.00. He had not had glasses for about 1 1/2 years. He was so sweet and when he left he tried to put the glasses away in the case, he was so used to not wearing them, he didn't think about wearing them."

It was time to say goodbye to 3 of our team members. Dwayne Grant and Drusie Thompson will be departing right after clinic along with one of our team doctors, Dr. Sonya Patel. It was a bittersweet moment to reflect on all our success for the week and all the new friendships we created, but sad to see some of our new friends leave.
Our grand totals for the week...
936 children seen, 711 needed glasses (some receiving 2 pairs) and 14 referrals!!!
Go TEAM CLEVELAND!!!
The team will have the weekend off and then it's back to work on Monday. Relax and enjoy, team. You deserve it!!!
October 18, 2012
Today was a very busy and successful day at the OneSight clinic. We saw 309 children, 235 of them needed glasses and we had 5 referrals. For the most part, the day went well considering how many students were in the building at once. We had a few extra doctors today which was a great help. With the last school, after they finished all of the pretesting we had to seat them again and wait for the other school to finish up with the doctors before we could send them upstairs to finish their exams. A bit of a struggle but we made it work.
Just a few more interesting stories to share from some of our team members, they love keeping everyone inspired...
"A little girl was doing visual acuities and could only see 20/200. When I asked her if she had any glasses, she said hers were broken. She stated that she had been wearing her stepmother's brother's glasses and they worked pretty good."
"A little girl named Elvira kept jumping up and down because she was so excited. Every time she read a shape, she threw her hip out and flipped her hair."
"A little boy with special needs was reading the shapes in visual acuities. He called the houses hexagons, he was so smart."
"Kaitlyn has had multiple eye surgeries, both to strengthen her eye muscles and also to bring her eyes closer together. She is about 8 years old. Crowds make her nervous so her mother brought her to the clinic early without her classmates. I got to go through the clinic with her every step of the way. She was such a ray of sunshine, so happy and friendly to everyone she met. Her mother was so appreciative because after every eye surgery, her PD is off and she needs new glasses and they can't afford that."
- REBECCA BARKLEY LensCrafters #0765
"I helped a young boy named Xavier. His glasses were broken and he had a +7.50 prescription. He had the opportunity to choose 2 frames. He kept saying, "I have to look cool...help me find glasses that make me cool." In moments we found 2 perfect plastic pairs, one brown and one black. After he tried each on and looked that himself in the mirror, he exclaimed, "Wow, I'm really cool now!!!"
"When it was time for Kaitlyn to choose her new frames, she could not contain her smile. She can only wear metal frames with notepads. Kaitlyn, her mother and I worked together as a team to find a pair of frames that fit her wider bridge and the wider distance between her eyes. She giggled as she tried on a blue frame that matched the color of her eyes. It was a perfect fit."

Tonight the team members will be having a crazy hat contest. What a fun way to relax after a hard days work!!!
October 17, 2012
Today was a shorter day for the schools, but definitely not for OneSight. 105 children came through for eye exams today and 85 needed eyeglasses. After the school children are done there is always a lot to do to prepare for days to come. This also gives us time to catch up on making the glasses from previous days and preparing them to be delivered to the schools for dispense. Its also a great time to collect stories about personal experiences that our team has during clinic to share with the rest of the world. Here are a few stories from some of our core team members, in their own words...
"For those on the clinic team who are in the lab, it's hard sometimes to connect with the kids. We see all the amazing prescriptions but we don't always see the faces. On Wednesday we made a lab moment. Ron Herbert, a lab tech from Victoria, BC, brought a hat to give to one of the kids. They chose to give it to Marshall. With the help of the team at frame selection, Ron got to meet Marshall. Marshall is a young man with special needs who wears glasses full time. Marshall, his class companion and their aid got to come out on EyeVan and meet Ron."
- AMANDA KROHN Pearle Vision #6303
"A little girl was struggling to pick out her frames. She was trying to decide between a black pair that she really liked and a purple pair which me and my fellow team member Hannah Toschlog, really liked. Then another little girl came in and I knew right away the purple frame would look amazing on this little girl. I put it on her and it did. The first little girl saw how excited we were about the purple frame and quickly picked it over the black ones. The two girls, both with the purple frame, walked downstairs to where Farrah Fakir was working"
- LEAH BRADLEY Regional trainer for Sunglass Hut region 12
"I was working at the control desk and had to check out the same little girl. She handed me her glasses and paperwork and I asked her to have a seat with her classmates. A minute later she came back up to me and said, "I need to make sure you don't mix up my glasses with the other girls" I started laughing and I assured her that I would keep them separate and that it wouldn't get mixed up. She waited around the control desk until her glasses were picked up to be taken to the lab."
- FARRAH FAKIR Sunglass Hut #5711
I was trying to track down the details of another story that I thought was amazing. A little girl was finishing up with her exam and her prescription was a -16.00. The doctor asked if she had glasses, but they were broken. One of the team members helped her find a frame and Andrew Hudson, who works in the lab, hand edged her own lenses into a new frame so she had something to take with her. That's just what OneSight does, changes lives!
No matter how different the story is, one thing remains the same. Even though OneSight changes lives by giving the gift of sight, the children of OneSight change our lives...forever.
October 16, 2012
Well the days seem to be getting better and better, hope we can keep it up!!! Our wonderful team of doctors saw 207 children today and 140 needed prescription eyewear. Our manufacturing lab made over 150 pairs. The kids definately needed our help today. There were quite a few high Rxs and one child told one of our team members that she lost her glasses in a house fire. The day did seem a bit longer though, not as many volunteers were offering their services today. The ones that did really made a difference and I believe we also made a difference for one particular volunteer named Shirley Johnson.
Shirley Johnson, 60, is an Occupational Therapist who works for the Cleveland Clinic Heath Systems. She had wanted to participate in some type of outreach program for the community when someone told her about how people can collect glasses for those in need. She went to the internet to do some research and when she Googled, OneSight popped up and that is how she first learned of us. She read that Sears Optical was one of the optical stores that collected the used glasses for OneSight and she wanted to get involved. She then contacted Denyse Kerr, who is the store manager for the Mentor location who in turn, gave Shirley my information and let her know that she is welcome to volunteer for Cleveland's upcoming OneSight clinic. Shirley was ecstatic.
So when she approached me at clinic today and asked if my name was Amy, I knew right away who she was. I was so excited that she made her way to clinic to help us. She worked with me in the auto-refraction station and assisted the children by instructing them how to place their chin on the chinrest and cleaned the machine between students. I showed her how to use the auto-refractor as things slowed down and before I knew it, she was handling it like a pro. Once we were done seeing the last of the kids, she asked what we do next. I told her everyone goes to lab to help make the glasses and invited her to come along and learn the ropes. One of the volunteers introduced her to the edging process and she actually was able to run the machine with assistance and even helped inserting the lenses. Before she left, I asked her what her favorite part was out of this entire experience. She replied by telling me she enjoyed making the actual glasses that are going to be delivered to the children in need.
With OneSight, everyone comes together as a team and the end result is always the same no matter how big or how small your part was... you ALL helped someone in need receive their eyewear.
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...
October 7, 2012
About 6 days from today, our clinic team will be arriving in Cleveland, Ohio. The coordinating team has been working around the clock to ensure this mission will be a successful one. Our goal is to help 3000 children receive free eye exams and new prescription eyewear. While talking with my team members, I can sense everyone's excitement and I know I'm very anxious for the clinic to begin. Cleveland is also my hometown which makes this particular experience more special to me.
Stay tuned in for our clinic updates and follow along as we track our progress and share this experience with you. Our team members this year come from all different locations and will be coming together for one common purpose- to bring clear vision to those in need.
So, get ready 'cause here we come!!!
About the Clinic
2012 Cleveland Clinic Blog Clinic
A team of OneSight volunteers and doctors will provide free vision care and eyewear to local students in need.
