The Vision Clinic schedules over 700 visits a year for individuals that need exams and eyeglasses. We are blessed to have six volunteer doctors, one who speaks fluent Spanish, and two tech assistants. Established in 2008, Violet Hofman manages the clinic but will soon be retiring and passing on the baton to Diane Olsen.
Violet has been committed to praying for the ministry and has many stories of the people she has helped. One of the most recent patients shared a personal story about how proud she was of her grandmother and her accomplishments. Although she had never met her grandmother, Alexandria had photos of her wearing a particular style of glasses.
“I really wanted a pair of glasses that is a modern version of what my grandmother wore in the ’50s to honor her.”
The fun part of Violet’s job is blessing her patients, as you can see in the photos. (Pictured: Grandmother Yvonne Francis Bozonier Ridley and Alexandria)
