David Oliver Relin’s unforgettable story of how two men with a shared dream are changing the world, one pair of eyes at a time.
In this transporting book, originally published in 2013, author David Oliver Relin shines a light on the work of Himalayan Cataract Project Co-Founders Drs. Sanduk Ruit and Geoffrey Tabin. Relin takes us from impoverished plywood operating tables in the farthest reaches of Nepal to state-of-the-art surgical centers to village hospitals in Africa where these driven men are restoring sight – and hope – to patients around the world.
The publisher will donate a portion of its proceeds from the sale of this book to the Himalayan Cataract Project.
