Unite for Sight

In an effort to treat and
prevent blindness - a condi-
tion that is preventable more
than 80 percent of the time
- the University's chapter of
Unite for Sight is educating
and supporting communities
both local and abroad.
In the Ann Arbor area,
members for Unite For Sight
perform community service
activities like promoting eye
health at local elementary
schools, volunteering at the
Penrickton Center for Blind
Children in Taylor, Mich.
and hosting eyeglass drives
to acquire gently used read-
ing glasses, distance glasses
and sunglasses for later
The glasses collected at
the drives, which occur at
various points through-
out the year, are donated to

impoverished areas around
the world. LSA senior
and club president Angela
Verkade said members who
collect the most eyeglasses
are able to travel abroad
to distribute the glasses to
adults and children in need.
The club also donates
to health clinics in Ghana,
India and Honduras. Once
abroad, students can gain
clinical experience while
learning more about opto-
metric issues.
"Volunteers work under
the doctors and help in clin-
its and with patients," said
Verkade, who got involved
in the organization fresh-
man year after considering a
career in optometry.
To support the club's
upcoming trips, Verkade
said the group will be trick-

or-treating for eyeglasses
around Ann Arbor next
month on Halloween.
Verkade added that for the
remainder of the year, the
group hopes to continue to
educate children on simple
methods of blindness pre-
"At elementary schools,
we present different ways
for teachers to look out for
eye issues early on or we talk
to the students about proper
eye care," she said.
According to Verkade,
the club's members, whose
majors range from global
health to education to sociol-
ogy, are united by the desire
to provide service to others.
"What brings us together
is being able to help the com-
munity," she said.

The University's chapter of Unite for Sieht collects tently used sunglasses, read-
ine glasses and distance glasses to donate to impoverished areas like Ghana.
