The second Cultural Evening Talk was scheduled on Thursday, 27 February. The topic was ‘What Can Happen to your Eyesight and What You Can Do About It’ and was very well presented by Dr Nada Jabbur, a leading ophthalmologist in the country. Dr Jabbur went into details on typical eye ailments, eye exams, options for glasses, laser correction and related discoveries in ophthalmology. She also shared with the audience some fantastic images from her travels around the world. Thank you to Dr Jabbur for her very worthwhile presentation and we were glad many of our community were able to attend.
