Mission Trips

Providing Eye Care to Those in Need Abroad

Dr. Ramsey's Work in Haiti

Dr. Ramsey has been on two mission trips to northern Haiti during which a team of optometrists and technicians traveled to five rural towns in Northern Haiti to provide eye exams and glasses.

 

On each week-long trip, the team saw over 1,500 patients, dispensed over 2000 pairs of eye wear, and referred dozens of patients for cataract and glaucoma surgery.

 

In January of 2018, Dr. Ramsey will return to Northern Haiti to again provide eye care to those in need.
