Icare tonometer used on Haiti mission trip

Thank you all so much for your generosity in loaning me the Icare Tonometer.  We discovered quite a few cases of glaucoma.  Most notably a 31 year old with pressures of 64!! I’ve never seen pressures that high.  The highest I’ve ever seen was 60!

It’s very tragic because she has such optic atrophy.  I was able to leave some drops for her and I’m trying to see if anything more can be done for her.  It’s heartbreaking to see people going blind because of poor access to healthcare.

Thank you for the great part you all play in helping those less fortunate.

Many Thanks!
