Mission Details : MMI will faciltate a one-week vision project in San Cristóbal de las Casas, Mexico from August 3-10, 2019. MMI’s work in Mexico began in the 1970’s. The MMI team will provide cataract surgeries and optometry to help the municipality deal with the need for these services. We will be based in the city of San Cristóbal, a central hub for many communities in need. In addition to the 1 and 2-week projects taking place, MMI also supports the development of four health centers committed to serving the people of Mexico. This project needs a comprehensive vision care team including Ophthalmologists, Optometrists, Opticians, Nurses, Technicians, and Non-Medical Support Team Members. Vision care projects are focused in urban areas, and include opportunities for local medical personnel to receive training. These large projects typically see a high volume of patients looking for all types of services, including cataract surgeries. The MMI team will provide screening for pathology, surgical candidates, and refractive error. The optical component will dispense Rx and reading glasses to patients. The team will provide the patients with an opportunity to have access to surgery in their own community by contributing a small but significant amount towards their procedure. Teams work Monday-Friday. Participants make a Project Donation which covers all in-country expenses, accommodations, meals, travel insurance, and malpractice insurance. Air fare is extra. This is an excellent opportunity to serve the people of Mexico!
