Helping The Blind To See

Reaching out

 
All of our doctors have worked in some capacity to help those with fewer resources.


Dr Harrison



Dr Walters



Dr Smith

 
 



Dr. Walters has participated in humanitarian eye care trips to both Puerto Rico and El Salvador.   Dr Smith spent several months working in a refugee camp in Sudan providing care to those desperately in need.



 



Dr Harrison has participated in Humanitarian efforts in Nigeria, Ethiopia, Haiti, and Ecuador.

Dr. Harrison and his family lived in Nigeria for two years working at a small teaching eye hospital in Kano, Nigeria.  Resident physicians came from various countries in West Africa to be trained in eye surgery.  Cataract surgery was emphasized since that was the major problem seen, but many glaucoma surgeries were done as well as a few cornea transplants.
