-International medical mission trips to Latin America, Nepal, and Haiti to provide culturally competent glaucoma treatment services, vision health education, and linkage to ongoing ophthalmology care for persons treated for glaucoma.
-Sharing information to further develop competencies that will enable ophthalmologists to effectively mentor, and facilitate knowledge acquisition to identify and treat patients with glaucoma in other developing countries through its Train the Trainer Fellowship Program
-Serving families and individuals in need of glaucoma care with free eye exams, surgical, and post-operative clinical care necessary to prevent disease progression and blindness.
-Instructing promising young ophthalmologist through international observerships to improve practical skills and broaden their perspectives of ophthalmology in the practice area of glaucoma.

Needs

Access to Care:

Our South Dallas Glaucoma Services Clinic was established so that organizations who identify patients with glaucoma at any stage of the disease will have a place to refer patients for treatments regardless of their financial situation. They will be seen by some of the best glaucoma specialists in the world who are familiar with all forms of glaucoma management. The unique aspect of this program is that it provides patients who have been unable to receive care with a treatment path that will prevent vision loss and permanent disability. Access to care and patient education is critical to prevent this tragic outcome.

Your donation will ensure we can continue providing low-cost glaucoma services to the underserved people of South Dallas and fill this perilous gap in care.
