Hollows Lecture

Cataract & Beyond

There are hundreds of eye diseases. Scores of them have blinding potential, and some are deadly. Many of these diseases have been virtually neglected in the developing world. Through my Hollows Lecture, I will be sharing a number of personal experiences that have had a powerful impact on me and on the direction of my career, and have ultimately led to the establishment of Sight For All. These experiences have shown me that, as ophthalmologists, we can deliver high impact and sustainable solutions that can not only broadly reduce blindness from many different causes,  they can also alleviate poverty and save lives in some of the poorest communities of the World.
