PV Supports Medical Mission to Nigeria
Poor vision is not just an affliction affecting people in the United States. It is estimated that there are over 284 million people around the world who suffer from poor vision because they do not have access to or cannot afford glasses.
 
That is why our company supports many medical missions around the world that combat this problem. In December of 2013 just such a mission was conducted by the Mezu International Foundation (MI), a Baltimore-based not for profit. (www.mezufoundation.org). 
“When Dr. Mezu-Nnabue who is the Medical Mission Coordinator MI approached our company for medical supplies to support this mission we were extremely pleased to help” said Lisa Holm, Director of Operations for Precision Vision , “PV routinely donates to such causes throughout the year, it is just our way of giving back”.
The company provided several testing materials including the Sloan 2-Sided ETDRS near point test along with several Patty Pics format reading tests for children and various Occluders.
“We were extremely grateful to Precision Vision for their outstanding support of our mission. The materials they supplied helped us conduct hundreds of vision tests to those who simply could not afford to do so” said Dr Mezu-Nnabue.
Interested in taking part in a mission?
The foundation is always in need of Physicians, Nurses, physician assistants, medical students and other volunteers in IT, agriculture and business. For detailed information contact the MI Foundation at 1008 Reisterstown Road, Pikesville, MD 21208. Phone 410-775-8001 or e-mail: [email protected].
