Dr. Clark Hyde and Dr. Cory McClung have recognized that the local CNIB branch in Medicine Hat is a smaller service centre and it is not yet able to offer the full scope of services needed for our community. As such, Dr. Hyde and Dr. Cory have volunteered at the CNIB since 2012 twice each month to perform low vision assessments for those who are registered with the CNIB and who are in need of low vision assistance. Dr. Hyde and Dr. Cory have found great joy in using their professional backgrounds to serve the community in this regard. As of 2019 however, the CNIB no longer has the same local resources, so Dr. Hyde and Dr. Cory have put their volunteer services on hold for now.
Lions Club Recycle For Sight!
If you have any old or unwanted glasses you may drop them off at 20/20 Vision Care, where they will then be picked up by the Lion’s Club and shipped to those in need of vision correction in third-world countries.
According to The World Health Organization, 153 million people have uncorrected refractive errors.
You can either drop them off in-store, or you can mail them to:
