2 Day Eye Clinic Report
Over a hectic 2 days’ of continual vision screening by all the assistants from 3 Rotary clubs and 3 Optometrists performing the final prescribing of glasses, a total of 261 students were examined. 31 Pairs of spectacles are prescribed. Grades 7, 8 and 9 were the target group, but a few teachers selected grade 4 and grade 6 students they assessed for possible vision problems. Baan San Paa Sak school is a large school of over 650 students, so the Children’s Sight Project will need to revisit this school to examine the remaining students in the future. At this moment, we have allotted 2 further days’ of testing in May 2017, when he hope to examine all of grades 3 and 6.
Chiang Mai Internatioanl Rotary Club (CMIRC) in collaboration with the Rotary Club Chiang Mai Thin Thai Ngam, the Rotary Club Chiang Mai North, the Rotary Club Chiang Mai San Sai, and the Rotary Club Changpuak Chiang Mai conducted a 2 day eye and health clinic at the Baan San Paa Sak school on November 7th and 8th.   There were some 21 Rotarians involved.  Australian Optometry Team consisting of Optomtrists Siri Tang, Kitty Liao and assistants Chip Liedel, Darren Azzopardi, Joe Demarco, Matt, Allan Tan, Sue Ewen and 4 members from "Good View Vision" made this all possible.
