March of Dimes
MEC staff and docs got together in Highland this weekend to support March of Dimes. We had a blast and it was great running into our patients out there on the race route! This foundation supports so many women and children both locally and globally. We ran in honor of those little angles that are with us today and those who are not. What a great event to be a part of!
Columbia, South America
Here we have photos of Dr. Virginia Bonilla’s trip to Colombia, South America. She volunteered her time and expertise to do eye exams for those in need!
VOSH 2014 Oaxaca, Mexico
Here are photos of the trip that Dr. Jen took with her husband to Oaxaca, Mexico. They were a part of a VOSH trip in Nov 2014 with the Illinois School of Optometry. Together with two other optometrists and many students, they saw 1200 patients in two days!
Manar came to our office to shadow for a school project involving different careers. We showed her all the things that an optometrist does including glasses, contacts, and managing diseases of the eye. I think she was a little surprised at all eye conditions an optometrist manages and definitely understand the importance of a yearly eye exam. We may have another eye doc in the making!
