This project supports an integral component of the Mercy Ships Mercy Vision Project. The Mercy Vision Project addresses blindness and other eye maladies associated with cataracts, pterygium, strabismus and other eye surgeries. Surgeries are performed onboard Africa Mercy. As part of the Mercy Vision project, Mercy Ships deploys the Ophthalmic Technical Team that works within the port city conducting secondary screening for patient selection, pre-operative assessment, post-operative treatments, measuring visual improvements, and providing optometric services as needed. Much of these activities will be conducted at a local clinic site.
