My name is Van. You assisted me with my application and approval for assistance from Mid-South Lions back in December 2023. I wanted to provide you with an update on my progress with the enucleation and prosthesis of my right eye.
Dr. Brian Fowler and the Hamilton Eye Institute (successfully) performed the enucleation (removal) of my right eye on December 28. I am very grateful to Dr. Fowler and the staff at Hamilton Eye Institute for the treatment and care I received.
Mr. Bob Thomas with Thomas Ocular Prosthetics Laboratories created my prosthesis for my right eye on February 19, 2024. The prosthesis is great. It is incredible how natural the prosthesis looks and resembles my other eye. The amount of movement the prosthesis has is amazing. Mr. Bob contacted me the next day to confirm that everything was going well with my prosthesis. Mr. Bob is a super nice man. I am totally amazed at the level of skill, talent and dedication that Mr. bob brings to the table. He is one-of-a-kind and irreplaceable in my opinion. I have included a photo for your reference.
I would like to thank you and Mid-South Lions for their assistance with my enucleation and prosthetic eye. None of this would have been possible for me without the assistance of Mid-South Lions. I will forever be grateful to Mid-South Lions. I am willing to volunteer my assistance to help Mid-South Lions in an attempt to help for the assistance that I received. Please contact me if I can ever be of assistance to Mid-South Lions.
Thank you.
Ms. Ashley Fletcher, 33, has suffered from a pre-existing eye-disease for several years. Fletcher, who wors for the Kutting Korner Salon in Hot Springs Village, AR, has been unable to obtain medical insurance coverage because of this condition.

With the assistance of Hot Springs Village Evening Lions, Fletcher had her first surgical procedure in early October at Mid-South Lions Sight And Hearing Service's Hamilton Eye Institute in Memphis, TN. She recently had surgery on one eye and will have surgery on the other eye later this year.

Ashley helped Kutting Korner host a putting contest at the Village Lions October golf tournament and will attend a meeting of the club soon.

The HSVE fundraising efforts over the years allows people like Ashley to get the special care they need at Mid-South facility in Memphis and through the Wallace Eye Center and St. Joseph Regional Medical Center in Hot Springs at no cost to the patient.

Members of the club are proud to be in a position to save the sight of a person who would not be able to receive this care without the Lions and Mid-South.
