Sight and Synchronicity: Blindness averted for Armenian “premies”, due to good timing and good medicine

Four Armenian babies who might have been blind in a matter of weeks, now have chance at a normal life due to the humanity of some foreign doctors, the dedication of local ones, and to benefactors who may never know the life-changing impact of their benevolence.

The infants’ good fortune has come by chance or by providence, but surely is the result of good timing and good intentions.

Last week, the Armenian Eye Care Project made one of its semi-annual missions to Armenia, following a schedule established since the project was founded by California ophthalmologist Roger Ohanesian in 1992.

The AECP is a GREAT program and has mobile units to assist people in the villages with eye issues. There is much progress in eye care in Armenia. Also Allergan Pharmaceuticals has a vice-president who is Armenian and they have donated many needed pharmaceuticals (drops) for AECP and are a major supporter of this project.
