About Me: 

My name is Dr Grace Ogbonna, am a Nigerian, I schooled at Abia State University where in I studied optometry and graduated as a doctor of Optometry. I have a great passion for the education of women in the remotest regions of the world on their vision, general health and related factors. Having been a benefactor of such a programme I sincerely wish to reach those whose life will be touched by such minute information which may not make any difference to a civilized mind, I wish to reach all those whose joy for life may be dependant on the presences or absences of such minute information knowing that information is a big key to better living.

My Passions: 
I have passion for women vision especially amongs those in the rural areas where there are little or no healthcare facilities. no wonder am now here in one the remotest part of Nigeria where women are relegatted to the background, with little or no vision
My Challenges: 
poor means of reaching this women especially with the neccessary information disemmination, timidity of this women, language barrier and even more so religious barrier
My Vision for the Future: 
creating a platform for the prevention of most preventible eye blinding diseases amongst women in the remotest parts of Nigeria and the world at large
My Areas of Expertise: 
optometry. care, maintenance and management of the eyes
My Languages: 
English, german, dutch, igbo and hausa
