BENEFITING: HIMALAYAN CATARACT PROJECT INC
My birthday is this week and wanted to do this . I hope you will join my hand for this good cause and fulfill my birthday wish .
The Himalayan Cataract Project works to eradicate preventable and curable blindness through high quality ophthalmic care, education and the establishment of a world-class eye care infrastructure.
Two intrepid ophthalmologists, Dr. Sanduk Ruit and Dr. Geoff Tabin, started the Himalayan Cataract Project to fulfill their personal goals of eradicating as much unnecessary blindness in their lifetimes as possible.
Drs. Ruit and Tabin have proven that hospital quality standards can be applied in poor areas lacking electricity and clean water. Their inventive approach and dogged perseverance made what 20 years ago was considered impossible – possible.
Today HCP reaches the most unreachable patients wherever its services are needed through a combination of:
teaching ophthalmic care at all levels,
furthering specialized care through training and skills transfer, country by country,
establishing self sustaining eye care centers, and
performing sutureless cataract operations in 6 to 7 minutes, at a low cost, with excellent outcomes.
