Optometrist Rhiannon Richer had the pleasure of spending a day volunteering at St Patrick’s Community Eye Clinic.

She prescribed and dispensed donated spectacles to those underprivileged.

This is her third year volunteering at the clinic.

She said that “it’s always a warming experience witnessing the gratitude expressed by those I spend the day testing”
