Some might have lost their glasses in the Katrina chaos, but it's certain that they all lost their eyeglass prescriptions, and that's why some evacuees are going to Thompson hall now for free eye exams.
Primarily patients are needing their glasses prescription. A lot lost their glasses during the storm and evacuation. We have offered to help and they are bringing patients over for us to see, says Dr. Kenn Freedman at TTHSC. Texas Tech is also providing faculty and 84 nursing students to provide round the clock health care at Reese.
