Our June 2016 Cataract Surgical and Medical Mission to Calca in the Sacred Valley of Peru was a great success!!  Over 400 medical patients and 924 eye clinic patients were examined, close to 1,600 pairs of distance, reading and non prescription sunglasses were dispensed, 51 eye surgeries and over 100 ultrasound procedures were performed.  This was accomplished by our 51 participants which included 11 physicians, 3 optometrists, 4 R.N.’s, 1 certified ultrasound technician, 1 certified surgical technician, medical students from Stony Brook, Columbia and NY Osteopathic medical school, nurse practitioner and physician assistant students from Stony Brook.

Since the inception of our organization in 2011, our portable eye clinic and operating room has examined over 4,000 patients, distributed 6,700 pairs of prescription glasses/sunglasses and performed close to 400 site restoring surgical procedures.  The portable medical clinic has administered health care to approximately 7,850 patients to people and performed approximately 250 portable ultrasound examinations.  We could not have done all of this work without the support of so many individuals, who have donated their time, energy, and funds to our cause.  A Promise to Peru, Inc. thanks each and everyone of you!
