Charity Work

"Sight for All" provides a training program to ophthalmologists in Laos who wish to undertake further specialization training in glaucoma management and glaucoma surgery. I was involved in setting up the modules for the teaching program and provide assessment and feedback to the ophthalmologists who wish to sit the exams. I also travel to Laos to provide a week of training and teaching in clinics, in the operating theatre and in the lecture room. Along with 11 other glaucoma specialists from around Australia and New Zealand, we provide an In-Country Fellowship training program which enables ophthalmologists in Laos to experience a glaucoma subspecialty fellowship without having to travel to another country, thereby avoiding the costs to the ophthalmologist of re-location and to the community of loss of surgeon for a year.
