PHILIPSBURG:—Kidz at Sea Foundation once again welcomed our sponsor, the Essilor Vision Foundation USA, who have been providing free eye exams on St. Maarten for the last three consecutive years.
During the last week of March, the Essilor Vision Foundation came with multiple doctors and all the necessary equipment for vision testing. They worked diligently in conjunction with the SVOBE schools and management to ensure that as many school students could be examined during their three-and-a-half-day visit. 768 individuals were tested on St. Maarten and 238 on Anguilla for a total of 1006 patients examined.
