day 7 of 19: glasses

Ever wonder what happened to your old eye glasses that you donated to the Lions’ Club? They might be in Honduras. I went through and cataloged 41 pair of glasses today. The clinic is in the transition phases of putting all of their glasses into a computerized searching system. So when a patient needs glasses, you can just enter the prescription (after it is determined) into the computer system and it displays the possible options. The sad thing is that it may take your glasses 20-40 years to arrive and get used in another country. Next time I come, I may bring my old glasses with me to donate so they will actually have a few modern pair of glasses from the last 20 years.
