Another step towards making glasses to prescription locally

The objective of Focus on Malawi has always been to support the development of eye-care services that become locally sustainable. One more step in this process happened yesterday when a large consignment of donated uncut lenses  was delivered to Embangweni Hospital. Soon, another big step: the staff will be trained to cut and insert lenses into frames, ready for dispensing.
