Here is a part of a testimonial from the optical team leader:
We fit 685 patients with glasses with just 2 people working in the optical area. Almost 300 of them were prescription glasses fit by Dianne Woods, after a few hours of training using a very expensive portable battery powered auto refractor which could read the lens of the eye very accurately and transferred the readings into a laptop computer. The computer was programmed to select the best pair of prescription glasses from our data bank of over 3000 prescription glasses. It worked great, including near sighted, farsighted, bifocals, trifocals and astigmatism.
This program was created by Holland Kendall, a retired, committed Christian who wanted to use his fantastic optical, technical and computer skills to help the poor people in the third world countries to see, while leading them to Christ. He trains people to use his equipment, packages everything for overseas shipment and loans us his equipment and program (only one known in the world) almost free.
My wife, Dora May, and a few others fit almost 400 reader glasses. It was very rewarding to see the expressions on the people's faces when all of a sudden they could see after so many years of everything being blurry, with no hope of ever seeing clearly again. No question that it completely changed many people's lives in just the few minutes it took to help them see clearly again. They could now go back to school, thread a sewing needle, get a job, read again and see our beautiful world clearly.
