People Visually Impaired
Your entire life is altered by blindness. Even more so if you live in a third world country. If more than 80% of vision impairment is preventable than we should focus on vision for global greater good. Orbis flying eye hospital can fly all over the world bringing state-of-the-art ophthalmic care and teaching facilities to remote regions.

With an operating theatre, laser treatment suite, pre- and post-operative care room and a 46-seat classroom, it is fully equipped with technology that can transmit live surgery lectures around the world in 3D via Orbis’s own Cybersight, a telemedicine training and online mentorship platform for eye health professionals in developing countries.
