Perhaps the most exciting achievement from our most recent Medical Mission to Armenia was the grand opening of our second Regional Eye Center in Armenia — and the first-ever eye clinic in the Lori province — the John and Hasmik Mgrdichian AECP Regional Eye Center in Spitak, Lori.

Last fall, Zhora, a 16-year-old boy from the village of Tsovinar, began to experience eye problems. He had blurred vision and, at times, the pain was so severe it became a struggle for him to open his eyes.

Born premature, baby Marina was diagnosed with retinopathy of prematurity (ROP) in both of her eyes. She would need laser surgery immediately to avoid a lifetime of blindness.
