Here’s recent testimonial from Illinois College of Optometry 3rd year Nancy Mughrabi:

“Adopting a 14-year-old amblyopic patient was the best thing I have done in my 3 years at school. I had an amblyopic patient who had -1.00-0.25×180 OD and -6.00-1.00×180 OS and hadn’t felt comfortable wearing her glasses for 4 years. Her parents couldn’t afford getting her contact lenses. Through Adopt-a-Patient™ program I was able to change her life drastically. The most valuable thing a student could ever experience is their patient looking with a big thankful smile for improving her vision after years of struggling with her glasses. Insertion and removal of Biofinity Toric lenses was hard at first, but she was very motivated to learn quickly. I’m so thankful for this program for allowing me to provide such an amazing opportunity for this little girl who really needed the contact lenses!”
