Guinea pigs wanted: free eye tests with our new autorefractor!

As reported in the last post, we’ve been donated an autorefractor by Colchester Trinity Rotary to install in one of the clinics we support in Malawi. This machine automatically tests eyes for problems beyond simple longsightedness.

On Friday 23 February, we’ll fire it up, check it and calibrate it by, among other things, testing a few people against the glasses they’re wearing. We’ll also do some ordinary eye tests on anyone who’d like one (no substitute, though, for going to the optometrist or GP if you have sight problems!).

There will be a bit of Goggle Working too, plus the usual tasty refreshments to keep you going. So, guinea pigs wanted! Starting 19:30 in Colchester, call 01206 622712 for venue details.
