Mobile Medical Mission Hospital’s Mission: St. Vincent, West Indies


Are you an Optometrist? Read this:

You are invited to participate in Mobile Medical Mission Hospital’s (MMMH) 37th annual humanitarian health care mission to St. Vincent, West Indies 25 May – 3 June 2013. Our team consists of 4 Ophthalmologists, 4 Optometrists, 1 ENT, 3 Dermatologists, 4 RN’s and 16 Assistants.
There is a 16% incidence of glaucoma, > 50 % incidence of cataracts, D< & HTN retinopathy. In the primary care section located in an air conditioned college, the protocol is for RN’s to check VA, dilate all patients, check IOP with a Tonopen and do an autorefraction with a Retinomax, before the OD reviews the findings and examines for pathology.
Completely different from your office setting-  No insurance, no payments for medications or glasses. We dispense donated eyeglasses from our 25000 pair computerized glasses inventory. St. Vincent is completely safe politically, medically, and English is spoken there. We stay at a 5 star private resort called Young Island. The physician owner gives us a 60% reduced rate. Accommodations include a beach from cottage and 2 meals per day. Lunch is provided free by the hospital. Cost is &175.00 per day and less if you share a cottage. Round trip airfare is about $850.00. All expenses are 100% tax deductible. More information is available at www.mobilemedicalmission.org , or contact the Mission Director, Colonel Jeff Pritchard, USAF (ret) at jobuf15@aol.com or the MMMH Operations Director, Dr. Robert Fisch at refeyecare@aol.com 
Thank you for your time and we hope to hear from you soon.  
Dr. Robert E. Fisch
MMMH Operations Director
