    Article, Communication - En anglais

    International symposium on ophthalmology in developing countries. San Francisco CA USA, 1992/03/12.

    Many developing countries face the overwhelming problem of addressing preventable and curable blindness.

    United States-based ophthalmologists can make important contributions in this regard by volunteering to teach and deliver eye care overseas.

    However, there are a number of potential risks and difficulties.

    Surgical Eye Expeditions (SEE) International has developed a logistical outline and planning checklist designed to minimize or avoid such problems.

    Critical components include a firm timetable, advanced planning, advance contact with a local ophthalmologist or organization, and a thorough understanding of the importance of adapting to the needs of other cultures.
