'A huge thank you to Louis Stone for their continual support towards Cardiff University School of Optometry Africa projects.
Louis Stone kindly donated a variety of glasses and ophthalmic equipment which were used during outreach in six different locations across Ghana in July.
Over the course of two weeks, students collaborated with the prestigious University of Cape Coast to perform non-profit sight tests to over 1000 patients, including school screenings and visiting rural villages around the south coast. Students also participated in a research project on glaucoma, and its prevalence in the Ghanian population led by the post-graduate team.
The team further observed different surgical operations to understand patient care post-referral, with donations going towards cataract surgery funding.
This incredible experience has helped to develop skills as upcoming optometrists, the importance of teamwork, and stamina across all aspects of life.
A big thank you to everybody who supported, enabling greater accessibility to eye care and transforming quality of life for all.'
'Great customer service :)'

'‘Thank you so much to Louis Stone for your continued support of Cardiff University School of Optometry and all our projects.
The Malawi trip not only allowed us to develop Optometry skills, but has given us a whole new perspective on life. Having come from free education, health care, a warm home and an endless supply food we were all humbled and realised just how fortunate we are and have been. Nonetheless, seeing the families, having the bare essentials, and sometimes less, it really provided a new perspective, seeing everyone so happy, regardless of the situation…'
