Icare makes SVOSH exams quick and easy

Hi Mr. Floyd,

My name is Melinda and I am the fundraising coordinator for the Student Volunteer Optometric Services to Humanity (SVOSH) at the Southern College of Optometry. This past May, our organization traveled to ten locations in Central and South America – we served 8700+ patients, dispensed 7900+ pairs of glasses, and made 880+ referrals. This is an incredible accomplishment that wouldn’t be possible without all of our supporters, including Icare USA!

The SVOSH exec board and I wanted to thank you and your company for providing us with Icares to take on our trips. For settings like our SVOSH clinics where we see hundreds of patients a day, the Icare was very useful to have. We all liked how quick and non-invasive the Icare is as well as how easy it is to operate! I wanted to send you some pictures from our trips of us using the Icare. We were very appreciative to have your Icares on a few of our trips so thank you again for providing them to us. We are looking forward to another great year with our upcoming trips in May!
