Dr. Stephen Mathias, a pediatric and eye muscle specialist from Danbury Eye Physicians & Surgeons, which has an office in New Milford, recently traveled to Honduras to provide ophthalmic (eye) surgery and services to children.
“It was exciting to be able to provide quality medical and surgical eye care to the children at the orphanage,” Mathias said. “I performed over 35 surgical procedures to eliminate problems which interfered with vision and learning in these children. It was heartwarming to see the smiles of the children after their procedures.”
The facility has served more than 600 people with major surgical procedures, provided more than 3,500 consultations.
