MEC update – Winter 2016


The Mobile Eye Clinic has been quite busy these past few months! The MEC team (CCB staff and Lions Club District A4) has ventured out into the cold and snowy Ottawa weather to perform eye clinics to 5 schools from the Ottawa-Carleton District School Board – that’s 13 clinic days with over 300 students!


We have enjoyed going to Hawthorne Public School for the first time in January and re-visiting the following schools:


– Queen Elizabeth Public School (February)

– Robert E. Wilson Public School (February)

– Connaught Public School (February and March)

– Pinecrest Public School (March)


At schools visited for the second time, we have found students that their vision have had a significant change from the last time we saw them. This confirms one more time the importance for children to have their eyes checked once a year.
