“Through the ORBIS Lens” is a collection of photos showcasing the issues surrounding global eye health. Each week ORBIS will share our best photographs highlighting our efforts to eliminate avoidable blindness around the world.
“Not everybody will have the opportunity I have had for this week or the next two weeks. They may be far way for logistical reasons and they couldn’t come. We are here to help those that are not here. It is not just the doctors. We depend on the nurses, we depend on the people maintaining the equipment, we depend on everyone. So if I learn something new, it educates not me only me alone, but eventually others as well.” – Dr. Dr. Lillian Musonda, Opthalmologist, Kitwe Eye Hospital, Kitwe Zambia
Dr. Musonda worked closely on Glaucoma procedures with Dr. Jamie Brandt (UC Davis long-time Volunteer Faculty) onboard the ORBIS Flying Eye Hospital during Week 1 of ORBIS’s program in Zambia in 2012. Watch her story here: http://youtu.be/zggdDoT9h2w
