Ming’s Optical on Sunday launched their new branch at the Lotus Mall, Parika, Essequibo Islands-West Demerara.
A release from the Ministry of the Presidency said that First Lady Sandra Granger lauded Managing Director, Dr Michele Ming’s commitment to providing quality healthcare services in Guyana.
“Our presence here today at this opening signals two things; first, as a business person, [Dr.] Michelle Ming is confident about the future of our country and shows this by her investment in this new branch. Second, [she] is determined to provide the best possible eye care to the citizens of this country,” the First Lady said.
Dr Ming, in an invited comment, referred to the services the residents of Parika and surrounding communities in Region Three will enjoy at the new Branch.
“We will be able to offer the people of this region comprehensive eye care where we can have the early detection of glaucoma, cataracts, diabetic and hypertensive retinopathy and macular degeneration. Instead of having to travel down to Georgetown, we have equipment here now where we can do visual field testing for glaucoma and do eye pressure measurements and a lot of tests that they use to have to go all the way down to town to get. This will also serve the Essequibo Islands, Leguan, Wakenaam as well as the other outlying communities,” she said.
The release said that the location is fully equipped with all the modern optical equipment and amenities.
