Madison Rotary Brings Vision Clinic to Honduran Villages

Madison Rotarians have been traveling to Honduras since 2015 to provide eyeglasses and medical eye care to people in the remote mountain regions of southern Honduras.  Led by Dr. Michael St.Peter and International Service Chair Tim McMicken, the team has examined over 1,500 people and dispensed over 2,000 pairs of glasses in three years.  In February 2017 alone, they examined 630 people, provided over 800 pairs of glasses, and treated multiple eye infections, dry eye disease, allergic conjunctivitis, and inflammatory conditions.  Furthermore, in cooperation with the Rotary Club of Choluteca, Honduras, they are coordinating to provide cataract surgery for approximately 20 people at little to no cost to the patient.
