ST JOHN VISION 20/20 EXHIBITION Photos: David Prior / St John, South Africa

S

t John Vision 20/20 exhibition is a photographic exhibition that shares a story reflecting the lives of those that work at St John Eye Care Clinics and those they seek help with their sight.

St John South Africa offers affordable and professional eye care support to those who otherwise cannot afford it. They operate in ten cities and many communities throughout South Africa, providing eye tests and dispensing spectacles to those members of the community who are unable to afford commercial rates. St John Eye Care Clinics are able to diagnose cases where patients require corrective surgery and can refer these patients accordingly for treatment at specialist facilities. Over the last 3 months, Inner Voice Creative, led by Robyn Keet has been traveling around South Africa visiting the various St John Eye Centres to see what they do and how average South African’s engage with their services. Sight is a very personal and intimate experience for each person. Healthy eyesight determines the quality of life and experiences. This is at the heart of our exhibition; the images showcase the individuals that benefit from the eye care services that St John offers to South Africans and embodies their motto: “Pro Utilitate Hominum” - In the service of humanity.

Right: “When I am not at the St John Eye Clinic in Durban, I serve 9 other Eye clinics around KZN. I am proud to be a community optometrist.”
