Brett Bennett, the Director of Vision Care for the Skygen International Foundation, spoke to our Club today about bringing vision tests and glasses to the children and people of Tanzania. Skygen has provided 110,000 eye exams and over provided over 25,000 pairs of glasses to the people of Tanzania in 2018. Each patient receives an exam of the same quality as you would receive at your local eye doctor. While this may seem like elementary care we are speaking about people who don’t have addresses, mail capabilities, phones and only 4 eye doctors per 2,000,000 people. Those statistics may help put this care in perspective.
