One small part of the recent Eye Care Vocational Training Team to Malawi was providing low vision care to people with albinism. Here are photos of a few of our patients who received photochromatic spectacles, sunglasses with a unique tint just for them, sunscreen, and a telescope to improve distance vision. Rotary Club of Lancaster, with partner clubs Elizabethtown, Mechanicsburg North, Lancaster Penn Square, and Northern Lebanon County, sponsored this Global Grant project that included training of local eyecare practitioners in the diagnosis and treatment of glaucoma, strabismus, albinism, diabetes, and a few other maladies. Ten Rotarians from our district, including Elizabethtown Rotarians Ken Wolfe and Joe Rebman , were joined by Danish colleagues to complete this amazing project.
