|Don Bosco, Monimbo, Masaya, Nicaragua -- Cataract Clinic|
The people of Masaya benefited from the experienced crew in attendance at the clinic. This year brought a few changes in the line up. Notably, two Ophthalmologists made the trip to Nicaragua and set up a Cataract Clinic in the Hospital in Masaya. The perennial favorite Stephen Grimes MD was joined this year by Charles Collins MD. The pair worked through challenges including autoclave issues to restore sight for 30 individuals. Dr. Grimes secured and brought an ophthalmic microscope which was donated to the Hospital in Masaya at the end of our stay this year.
Conor Collins took some great photos of the Cataract Clinic for 2007.
