NTERI has partnered with Lions Club International to collect used eyeglasses at UNT Health Science Center, joining the worldwide effort to give sight to those in need.
We currently have a donation box in each building on the UNTHSC campus that will be available every other quarter.
NTERI hosted the Living Well with Vision Loss event. The seminar was directed to adults in the 55+ range with vision loss, macular degeneration, etc. to inform them of the resources available to them and to address the grieving process of losing their vision.
