A few weeks ago Dr. Pathak and his wife were humbled working along side Brian Van Dusen and many other amazing volunteers at CLFIS California Lions Friends In Sight in Whittier, CA. CLFIS does free vision screenings 23 times a year all over Southern California and Mexico. This organization is a well oiled machine:
1. check in and fill out paper work, 2. get auto refracted, 3. checked for glaucoma if over 40, 4. get your prescription, 5. screened by a optometrist or ophthalmologist, 6. get your FREE glasses for all ages. To see a child who has not been able to see clearly for years put on a new pair of glasses is magical.
The Pathaks were so honored to be able to be apart of a day that so many have dedicated so much more time, energy and resources to including the Seal Beach Lions Club. They need more doctors/volunteers so that they can have more screenings; spread the word. Share this post!!
If you have used glasses or frames that are sitting around your house, consider donating them. Drop them off at our office: 5175 E. PCH, #102, Long Beach, CA 90804.
In this short video you can see how they set up the space. Dr. P examined over 70 people right before they were given the “gift of better sight”. This screening had over 350 people, most received glasses. This event had mostly Spanish speaking people and luckily Nimesh as well as all the other volunteers spoke fluent Spanish.
