St. Maarten Medical Center (SMMC) treated 45 students from Milton Peters College (MPC) to free eye care exams during the past weeks.
Officials of MPC approached SMMC with the request for free eye care exams for 45 MPC students as part of their ongoing “Reading Glasses” project to which SMMC responded positively with the granting of the request.
SMMC Optometrist Bsc. Robert Bakker said: “It is a great project which we gladly participated in as eye exams should be done from early on to make sure even the youngest eyes are in optimal health”.
SMMC’s brand new and state-of-the-art Eye Care Clinic, which opened in September last year, is seeing an upsurge in eye patients visiting the clinic and underlines SMMC’s commitment to expanding medical services on island by delivering quality care, close to home.
The Eye Care Clinic is located in SMMC’s Care Complex. Patients who wish to see the new eye specialists can make an appointment at the Outpatient Department at Tel: 543-1111 ext. 1300 / 1310 / 1334 or 1345. Appointments can be made from Mondays-Fridays between 8:00 am – 4:30 pm. SZV patients are requested to obtain a referral letter from their family doctor before visiting the eye specialists.
