Living in Faith brings the healing gift of sight at five locations in Haiti. This is a ministry to improve the vision of Haitians so they can see the beautiful things God has created.
At each of the vision centers, a basic eye exam is given. Those persons who would benefit from reading glasses and sunglasses are offered glasses. In addition, eye wash is available for relieving itchy, scratchy eyes. For those patients who need correction for distance vision, records are maintained and they are called when exams are offered to determine the best prescriptions.
Referrals from medical teams for patients they encounter with eye problems are welcomed!
Test are given to determine the best lens for single distance vision or for bi-focal. All glasses are made from new material specific to meet the patient’s needs.
Patients are evaluated for high intraocular pressure which is one indication of possible glaucoma. Blood pressure checks are taken and patients are referred for a blood pressure consult.
