“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.
“I really appreciate the opportunity to start out the whole ORBIS program and kick it off with Cyber-Sight. What it does is allows me to get a sense of the level of the host country is at with respect to their surgical and technical abilities. You can determine basically the kind of problems they want to tackle. It helps you prepare for your lectures, it helps you prepare for and orient your own personal program to maximize the learning capacity of the host country.” --Dr. Gene Howard, ORBIS Volunteer Faculty Member during ORBIS's Flying Eye Hospital Program in the Philippines in 2012
