"Fighting Global Blindness: Improving World Vision Through Cataract Elimination"

Global Blindness book cover

Written by HCP co-directors Dr. Sanduk Ruit and Dr. Geoff Tabin and HCP friend Dr. Charles Wykoff, "Fighting Global Blindness: Improving World Vision Through Cataract Elimination" tackles the topic of fighting global blindness.

Cataract is the cause of millions of cases of visual impairment and blindness in poor populations throughout both the developing and the developed world. This wonderfully written volume shares the experiences of a team of surgeons who have demonstrated how the surgical procedures can be simplified and made more efficient, accessible, and far less expensive. It is a step-by-step manual to solving the problem where adequate surgeons can be trained to follow suit.

Published in 2006 and distributed by the American Public Health Association.
