Lha’s free eye checkup and free glasses project

lha free eye checkup a

As a part of Lha's Health and Hygiene Services & Education program, Lha organized a free of charge eye checkup and glasses project with the target budget to help 120 people within the community. The project started from September and was supposed to be valid until the end of October. However, since we exceeded the budget and number of people before our estimated time frame, unfortunately the project had to be ended much earlier.

The eye check up was available to anyone who wanted their eyes tested and all eye examinations were conducted in the Lha office. Based on the outcome of each eye test, individuals that needed further examinations were then taken to Delek Hospital. A scheduled appointment had been made with Delek Hospital's eye doctor Dr. Lungtok la for every Wednesday and Thursday from 3 o'clock in the afternoon. On these two days Lha would bring down the group of people for their examinations.

Delek Hospital very generously offered some prescribed glasses free of charge so that we could effort glasses from the optometrist at a cheaper rate and could buy more glasses to meet the required number of people that needed glasses. So based on Dr. Lungtok's prescription for each individual, we then went to the optometrist and each person could choose their own design of frame.

The Annual Report, written by Lha’s Director, Ngawang Rabgyal, sets out the aims of the organization, the year’s developments and the latest financial position. It also illustrates the diversity of the social programs provided, and the numbers of students who have benefited from these services. These achievements could not have been reached without the generosity of the volunteers and the dedication of the students and Lha’s employees.

Lha’s primary goal is to provide meaningful social services, such as free education, computer skills courses, vocational training, health and environmental education and service, volunteer coordination, cultural exchanges, free books, medicine and clothing distribution. The services of Lha are open to Tibetan refugees as well as the local Indian population and people from the Himalayan regions.
