  • Ophthalmologists and Optometrists (eye health, refraction)
  • Skilled volunteers (opticians, medical and vision professionals, and students for visual acuities, autorefraction, dilation and tonometry, frame fitting)  
  • General volunteers (registration, color & depth, data entry, other duties)
