Advanced Eye Examination

Thanks to Shami Eye Center, STEPS was able to offer 9 year-old Yousef a thorough eye examination which his family had not been able to afford. Dr. Mohammed Abu Al Dabaat kindly offered expert diagnosis on Yousef’s blocked tearduct condition. Yousef’s mother had the chance to get helpful advice and it was a great comfort to hear that no operation is necessary.

Last month Yousef had been one of nine children from the “I Have a Dream” society in Wahdat refugee camp who participated in STEPS’ bowling FunDay. The activity had included a basic eye test at Optikos Shami which is when we became aware of the situation. In the course of our activities for children and youth, STEPS endeavors to provide assistance to those in need whenever possible.
