Give the gift of sight! Have you ever thought about volunteering your time and talent to help those less fortunate in developing countries?  I work with a nonprofit, volunteer organization dedicated to the delivery of professional medical, surgical, and educational vision health care services—free-of-charge—to medically underserved populations in places such as Latin and South America. We offer medical, surgical and optical services, including cataract removal with intraocular lens insertion, strabismus repair, pterygium removal and various oculoplastic procedures for tumors, birth defects, and trauma. In addition, medical conditions such as glaucoma and infections are diagnosed and treated. Many hundreds of people are refracted on every trip, and eyeglass measurements are taken and glasses fitted for the refractive errors. The teaching of local professionals often takes place. We are in need of optometrists, ophthalmologists, opticians, anesthesiologists, nurses, and scrub technicians for upcoming trips.  Would you consider volunteering with VHI in any of the following places? Villa Nueva, Guatemala La Entrada, Honduras Riobamba, Ecuador Kibosho-Umbwe, Tanzania  Piura, Peru If you would like to learn more, please send me an email with your contact information.  There is no obligation!  If you know of a colleague who may be interested, please pass on the invitation.  We are always in need of volunteers!
