Salt Lake Tribune

The Salt Lake Tribune published a feature story on July 23, 2012, about Himalayan Cataract Project co-directors Dr. Geoff Tabin and Dr. Sanduk Ruit.

The article focuses on their tireless work aimed at eradicating blindness in Nepal, where Dr. Ruit is based at the Tilganga Institute of Ophthalmology. The paper reports, “Today, Tilganga is considered a world-class surgical facility, training institute and ground-breaking clearinghouse for cornea transplants.”

In the article, Dr. Tabin described the transformative moment for patients after eye surgery. “I never lose my excitement for that moment, especially people who have no idea they are going to regain their sight,” said Tabin, a witness to the event thousands of times. “There’s disbelief and recognition and emotion. It makes me so excited to be a doctor, every time.”
