[nectar_dropcap color=””]O[/nectar_dropcap]ur pilot project ran on Sunday, March 4th, 2018 at the Downtown Eastside Neighbourhood House (“DTESNH”). Approximately 50 seniors who frequent the DTESNH were provided with free eye examinations conducted by colleagues, instructors and students of Douglas College’s Dispensing Optician Program. The seniors were also provided with new prescription eyeglasses, which they picked up three weeks later. Through generous donations, the eyeglass frames are provided at zero cost by the Dispensing Optician Program and the lenses will be funded by the Richmond Chinatown Lions Club (“RCLC”)
