Optometry WA supports St Pat's Fremantle
Optometry WA run a monthly eye clinic at St Pat’s Community Support Centre in Fremantle. On the third Tuesday of every month (except December), Optometry WA Executive Officer, Evan MacRae runs the eye clinic with the support of one of our kind volunteer optoms.
The frames are all donated or recycled and the lenses are kindly provided at a very low cost by CR Surfacing Laboratories. We ask for volunteers at the start of each year and we currently have all our volunteers for the 2020 St Pat’s dates.
Sadly, due to COVID-19 restrictions, we have had to cease the OWA St Pat’s monthly eye clinic for March, April and May.
