Eye/Dental Exam

All the children whose initial eye/dental assessment call for a doctor's examination will be seen at this stage. 

In 2015, we were fortunate to have both an eye exam station and a dental exam station. Most years, we are only able to accommodate one or the other. 

The most common dental procedure is tooth pulling for rotted teeth. The children are intimidated by this procedure, but the accompanying parent is so appreciative.  

An eye station visit often ends with the child wearing home prescription glasses. These glasses are donated, categorized, and cleaned in the U.S. and brought to Haiti by our optometrists. Sometimes stylish/sometimes not, the glasses still bring smiles to the children when they look through their "new" glasses for the first time.
