PINA PALMERA, MEXICO
I n January of 2008, Dr. LaGreca made his first trek to Kata Lukau on a mission trip to Pina Palmera, in the south of Mexico. He worked with a small team to provide surgery and optometry to those in both local and remote villages.
Dr. LaGreca makes an effort to return each year, offering solutions to impoverished villages who otherwise would not have the care they need.
UTAH NAVAJOLAND OPTICAL PROJECT 2008-2009
The Eye Clinic Optical Department was involved in the Navajoland optical project. The first clinical prescription glasses screening and distribution effort to provide prescription eyewear to children in the Utah Navajoland region.
The Eye Clinic donated equipment (auto refractor) as well as frames. We also processed over 175 pairs of glasses for the children that have been affected with bad vision in the Utah Navajoland schools. We were delighted to be a part of this optical project as it helped so many children reach their optimal vision and aptitude potential. Since the rewards for helping someone else were so great in 2008, we chose to participate again in November 2009. In this years efforts we helped another 100 children in the Utah Navajoland region to correct their vision with glasses.
