ONESIGHT PATIENT | LOTA, CHILE
Veronica is 30-years-old and hasn’t seen the faces of her 4 small children clearly. That’s because she lost almost all of her vision in her first pregnancy and where she lives in Lota, Chile it can take up to 2 years to get a pair of glasses. That is, if you can afford them.
Veronica and her husband Jose, a construction worker, came to the OneSight Vision Clinic with great hope that they might be able to see again. Their family has been facing many challenges every single day as a result of their completely blurry vision. With great delight, Veronica left the clinic with a prescription for a pair of glasses with a -14 power and a temporary pair with a lower prescription of -10 to help her get by until the new pair arrived in a month on a special shipment. Right after she was given her glasses, Veronica wanted to see her baby’s face and she requested a mirror right away because she’s always heard that she had freckles by hadn’t seen them.
Her husband, Jose, carried around a single lens in his pocket to help him see a little bit. His vision was also awful. When Jose put on his first pair of glasses with his -9 prescription, Veronica smiled at him and flipped her hair a little bit. She said, “And, do you like what you see?”
