Mercy Vision School Outreach...

The Mercy Vision Zithulele team did its first school outreach this past Wednesday. (24th July.) We saw 127 children and performed VA (Visual Acuity) tests on them all. We also dispensed eye drops to a few children with itchy or teary eyes, and referred a small number to our eye clinics. It was a great day!

 While we screened the older students, the pre-schoolers waited for their lunch. Hmm, yum!
