Our team of seven Pacific University College of Optometry students and two optometric physicians will head to Northern Thailand in December 2013 to provide as many free eye exams as possible for those without access to care. A similar mission trip occured last year in Southern Thailand and we made such a huge impact that we were requested to return to help in other parts of the country.

We will be spending half of the mission in Bangkok, Thailand and the remainder of the trip in Northern Thailand in Chiang Mai. By the end of the trip, our team hopes to see up to 1,000 patients and improve their vision and ocular health in any way possible. We will be involved with everything and anything, from instilling eye medications to refracting patients to finalizing glasses prescriptions.

Our hosts in Thailand will be donating in-country accommodations and meals, so the only trip cost is the $1656 flight (per person). Even the smallest donation helps and decreases any additionally incurred debt for the students. Thank you for your time and consideration friends and family!
