A typical surgery day on our mission in Ecuador.
We screen a couple of hundred patients and select the patients who are in need of surgery to restore their eyesight. Most patient can only see light or hand motion from up close as their cataract are very advanced.
They are overjoyed and happy the next day when their eye patches are taken out and they can see clearly again for the first time in many many years!
We are grateful to have a great support team, many volunteers come with us from the US and also nurses and translators from the local hospital in Ecuador.
The patients are well taken care of and are in good hands with Dr. Kondrot and his team!
