MEDICAL BRIGADE OF GLASSES AND PROSTHETIC EYES

SRW Eye Team 2014By Lorena Gonzalez
Teacher at La Providencia School in Siguatepeque, Honduras

It was a great experience for me to translate with this brigade for Doctor David Gamm. It was a time of service and learning and I also had a lot of fun when I put the drops in the eyes of the patients. They told me that I was the bad guy because the drops sting a little bit. Also it was very fun when the patients called me DOCTOR!!! It helped me appreciate and value the simple things in life.

I also appreciate that I was able to receive a professional and thorough eye exam, which far exceeded the level of care I experienced with a private physician down here. I admire the professionalism of Dr. Gamm. He took his time to examine each patient and much care to tell the patient or parent the problem that they had in their eyes.

One of the complaints of each patient was that they could not read their Bibles because they could not see the letters. It gave me great joy to see children and young people with prosthetic eyes and the ways it changes their image, personality, and emotions.

Generally I feel that this brigade has changed my way of thinking and I value having my eyes healthy. I am filled with joy to see people who have never had the money to buy a pair of glasses and joy for them to receive this gift that has changed their lives in fulfilling the ability to read the Bible. Since this brigade, I am not the same. It changes my point of view about life... and eyes, as there were patients (babies) about to lose the only eye they had left because of the retinoblastoma. So I am thankful that I was part of this brigade and thankful to this group of doctors and the people who invest their time and money to help people in need.
