In the photo on the right Dr. Carl goes over the plan for the day with the team.
This is our intake process where we get information from the patient on their medical history and other vitals.
Using an auto-refractor we measure the prescription in the eyes. This amazing machine uses a cone of infrared light as part of the measuring process.
Then the patients get to see Dr. Carl who examines them and then pulls all of the information together to determine what the patient needs and he prescribes the corrective lenses if required.
As per most of our training sessions we ended up with some hospitality - today was homemade chili, veggies, salad, bread and focaccia. We finished off with some magnificent chocolate peanut butter cookies. Check out our recipe section if you are interested.
Thank you to the volunteers for helping us prepare for our clinics in Guatemala.
