Our networking with Promise for Haiti and Hopital Bienfaisance de Pignon has improved eye health in that city.

What we’ve accomplished:

 

1.

We have set up an eye clinic in the hospital of Pignon.  Each year we screen roughly 1,200 patients, treat an average of 300 cases of glaucoma, and perform 60-70 cataract and other eye related surgeries.

 

2.

We are networking with the hospital in Pignon to hire an OD who would screen patients regularly, dispense eyeglasses, sunglasses, and recognize pathology of the eye.

 

3.

Though our laser focus is treating preventable and curable blindness, our peripheral vision recognizes the drastic poverty the residents of Haiti face. We network with local villagers and farmers to help where we can, like purchasing goats for families.
