The 2019 Annual Right to Sight World Sight Day Clinic was held Saturday, October 5, at the UW Health University Station Eye Clinic. Suresh Chandra, MD, professor emeritus and founder of Combat Blindness International (CBI), and Reena Chandra Rajpal, president and executive director of CBI, were in attendance to kick off the clinic and personally thank volunteers. Fifty people were provided with eye care services, and the University of Wisconsin Optical Store provided 31 spectacles at no charge.
Since 2007, CBI has partnered with UW Health and the University of Wisconsin Madison Department of Ophthalmology and Visual Sciences within the School of Medicine and Public Health to provide services to underinsured or uninsured Dane County residents that need eye care. Patients screened at pre-approved primary care clinics are referred to our every-other-month, Saturday program and are provided with a full eye exam with refraction and dilation.
“no matter how they get to us, WE ARE MOTIVATED BY OUR PATIENTS AND WANT THEM SEE THEIR WORLD.
We are so grateful to combat blindness international and our volunteer faculty and staff for supporting this clinic.”
