Dr. Kelley: Twenty Eye Exams on Monhegan with Remote Technology

Dr. Kurt Kelley & Director Sharon Daley, RN on Monhegan

Imagine living on a coastal Maine island where you have to schedule a three-day trip to the mainland and back for a routine eye exam. Well, this month, Sharon Daley, the Mission Director of Island Health boarded the Monhegan mail boat with Kurt H. Kelley MD, President-Elect of the Maine Society of Eye Physicians and Surgeons (MSEPS).

“Kurt saw 20 people for eye exams and Monhegan was very appreciative to have him,” Sharon Daley said. “We held the exams in the parsonage on the island, and as you can see by the picture, Kurt is very good at making do by putting blankets over windows etc.”

Monhegan Parsonage set up for eye exams. This photo has been lightened to better see its details.

Here is a look at the cutting edge equipment Dr. Kelley used to “read prescription eyeglasses and perform refractions,” he said in an email, adding that having this portable equipment is “definitely a time saver.”
