Educational Session With Calvary Methodist Church

Education is a beautiful phenomenon woven through the entire fabric of life and it is the best gift ever any parent can give to a ward or better still the community to an individual.

The utterance of World Sight Day everywhere in October elicit a sense of excitement among Eye Healthcare professionals because it is our month, a month of eye care awareness and propagation of bettervision among all individuals. In light of that on the 7th of October, 2018 myself and a Danso a member of @bettervision team paid a visit to Calvary Methodist Church at Santase, Kumasi, Ashanti Region, Ghana West Africa to have a Glaucoma talk with the congregation and also to pre-inform them of free screening exercises that are been planned for people the vicinity.

Most of the talk was centered on Glaucoma which is silent theft of sight, however we also brood on topics like the significance of getting your eyes examined regularly and the need to avoid self-medication which could be very detrimental and quite deadly to ones sight in some instances, for example an abrasion of the cornea not well treated by a well-qualified optometrist can result in scar formation which would impede light from entering the eye and ultimately the individual losses his or her sight.

It was glorious Sunday indeed, wonderful sermon from the preacher and a wonderful educational session.

Don’t be afraid of life. Believe that life is worth living and it will help you create the fact
