“I cannot find a way to show my gratitude to Dr. Quan, to the nurses who cared for my little angel for months, and the hospital that supported me so much during this time. The hospital saved his sight.”
Baby Thinh had retinopathy of prematurity (ROP) a potentially blinding eye disease associated with premature birth. More than a year ago, families would have to travel over 600 miles for treatment. Through ORBIS training, the pediatric team at Hue Eye Hospital in Vietnam is able to save the sight of other children like Thinh. Learn more about ROP: http://bit.ly/11IjgWb
