West Texas optometrist, a Lions Clubs district governor, donates equipment to ophthalmology
Javier Morales, OD, a practicing optometrist from Odessa and governor of District 2-T3 of Lions Clubs International, visited the UT Health San Antonio ophthalmology clinic at the Texas Diabetes Institute on March 29 to make a very important delivery: the gift of an electrophysiology test unit.
The roll cart system can be moved from one room to another in the busy ophthalmology clinic. Its uses include testing of visual evoked potentials, which measure electrical signals sent to the brain from the eyes. This objectively tests the entire visual pathway.
Accepting Dr. Morales’ generous gift were Daniel Johnson, MD, chairman, and Jeong-Hyeon “John” Sohn, MD, TDI clinic medical director, both in the Department of Ophthalmology in the Joe R. and Teresa Lozano Long School of Medicine. Dr. Sohn said it is greatly needed equipment for the clinic.
The Department of Ophthalmology is grateful for the long legacy of generous support provided by the Lions Sight Research Foundation and District 2-A2, which includes Bexar County. That appreciation now extends to Dr. Morales and District 2-T3, Dr. Johnson said.
