Himalayan Cataract Project Advisory Board member Dr. Dan Reinstein of London Vision Clinic Foundation (LVCF) will return to the Tilganga Institute of Ophthalmology in Kathmandu, Nepal, to participate in the official launch of the new Refractive Surgery Unit on April 7. The Unit has been renovated with support from USAID/ASHA, HCP and LVCF. HCP Co-Directors Sanduk Ruit and Geoff Tabin and many others will be on site for the momentous occasion.

In January, a soft launch took place where Dr. Dan Reinstein and Tilganga’s Dr. Kishore Pradhan provided 40 Lasik surgeries to full paying clients. In February, LVC Surgeon Glenn Carp returned to the RSU for continued training with Dr. Kishore.
