Be a #DifferenceMaker

I recently had the opportunity to give back.  I was part of a great team of eye care professionals with the Essilor Vision Foundation that went on a mission trip to St. Maarten.  We examined over 1,000 patients!  Most of the exams were for children and students but we also visited a local nursing home as well.  I will never forget this experience; it was touching to see the smiles when the children could see clearly during my exams.  I also learned that the students test scores have improved after they received their glasses made by the Essilor Vision Foundation.  I look forward to giving back in the future!
