On March 6th, the Special Olympics Event was held in Charleston. It was one of our largest events to date! We screened 126 athletes making 53 pairs of prescription glasses and 7 pairs of sports goggles. We distributed 60 UV pro¬tection plano sunglasses and made 7 referrals. Thank you to all of the members who made this event such a success – Dr. Mike Zolman and Dr. Jennie Smith(co-clinical directors), Dr. Lori Donovan, Dr. James Vaught, Dr. Kristen Harwood, Dr. Janet Monaco, and Student Dr. Katy Falk. A special thank you goes to the Charleston Lions Club who helped with athlete’s check-in and Essilor Representative Brenden Sullivan and his wife, Bailey Sullivan who helped fit frames and glasses.
Our next Special Olympics Event will be held in Columbia, SC on May 8th.
