I've spoken to the head of the School of Optometry at UNSW and she has given me the go ahead to start exploring an Optometry student exchange program with Dr Sagunj in Nepal. The students from this year’s trip, seen in and around the eye hospital in the following photos, are planning a visit to our club once semester finishes (in November/December).  I have also started moving the optical equipment to a storage unit in Minto so that I can commence cataloguing and packing for Nepal so we should see everything ready by Christmas.
