There were a total of 6 optometrists and 2 ophthalmologists on the team. A total of 1103 patients were seen over 3 days. The patients were given ocular health examinations, eyeglasses when needed, and sunglasses. People who needed treatment for more advanced ocular diseases, like cataracts or glaucoma, were referred to a local clinic. The majority of patients were indigenous peoples called Ngäbe-Buglé.
