The gift of sight

We’re delighted to share this story of a patient in our Almonte office who went out of their way to help a young boy they met while on a holiday in Cuba.

Boy with glassesIn the course of their time together, they discovered that this little boy had a very high prescription and was in absolute need of new glasses which his family simply could not afford.

Our patient took photos and arranged for the boy’s prescription from his eye doctor in Cuba to be sent to us, and we were able to make a pair of glasses that were delivered to the boy on a return trip to Cuba.

Amazingly, the glasses fit the boy quite well. Our patient prefers to remain anonymous, but we really want to recognize this lovely act of generosity.

The world is a big place, and sometimes simply helping one person can make all the difference.
