David received prescription eyeglasses.

With the aid of Watsi funding, David has received glasses to correct his vision. He no longer experiences problems with his eyesight, and does not struggle with blurry vision or seeing faraway objects. We are confident that David will continue using his glasses, and that they will help him in every aspect of his life.

David says, “Thank you so much for your help. May God bless you, it is a great help to my person.”

David is a 30-year-old man from Guatemala who lives with his family in the country’s rural highlands.

When David was just a baby, a small branch perforated his eyeball. He has had trouble with his eyesight ever since, having experienced a number of eye infections and still requiring eyeglasses in order to see. Today, his eye bothers him more than ever before, and his prescription has become ineffective in helping his vision. Having formerly never been able to afford a complete checkup, David was able to go to a free eye clinic one month ago and receive a full eye exam. The doctors at the clinic prescribed David a new pair of glasses, however he does not have the resources to purchase them.

Our medical partner, Wuqu’ Kawoq, is requesting $552 to cover the cost of David’s new glasses and prescription lenses. He is scheduled to receive these glasses on June 9 at our medical partner’s care center, Intituto Panamericano. These new glasses will help David to see better, supporting him in his work and daily life.

“I will forever be grateful for this support,” says David.
