A Surgeon from Illinois stopped by the Vision Screening trailer at the 2015 Alaska State Fair to say hello and thank the District 49A Lions for offering vision testing.
Several years ago he stopped by and was given a glaucoma test that indicated a problem with this right eye. He had the eye tested, which indicated high pressure. A stent was placed in the right eye to control the pressure thus saving the sight in that eye.
This physician, while living in Illinois, has maintained his membership in Resurrection Bay Lions Club since the 1960’s.
