NATIVE MISSION

Vision Source and longtime member Moes Nasser, O.D., are teaming up with Optometry Giving Sight to construct two optometric clinics in northern Tanzania, scheduled to open later this year.

Dr. Nasser, a Tanzania native, has led mission trips to the country for more than a decade.

“When I return to my village, I sit under the shade of the same tree that I sat beneath as a child and am transported to the days when my father struggled to provide our family with the essentials, like food; it is easy for me to relate to the villagers,” Dr. Nasser says. “Vision Source and the Brien Holden Vision Institute are helping to give back to humanity with a strong plan for their eyecare future.”
