The 2017 Hopeful Ways Eye Care Medical Brigade was a tremendous success and provided free eye care services to almost 3,000 of the poorest people in Juigalpa Nicaragua. The services included vision screening, eye examinations, eye surgeries (for cataracts, pterygium and strabismus), prosthetic eyes, and dispensing of prescription and reading eyeglasses, sunglasses, safety glasses and eye moisturizing drops.
