World Sight Day: Order of Malta Maltese Association

To commemorate ‘World Sight Day’ the Maltese Association of the Order of Malta partnered with local business Class Optical Ltd. to provide asylum seekers with pairs of spectacles.

Forty patients including both children and adults were given an eye test by the company’s resident optometrist in a purpose built mobile clinic donated by the Order of Malta. From those who received the eye test, thirty-three patients required corrective vision. Lenses for all prescriptions were produced locally in the company’s optical lens laboratory, cut and mounted onto a frame of their choice from a selection provided.
