Alliance Retina International
In 2005, the Alliance Retina team organized what is still one of the only third world retina programs in a world that is served by hundreds of cataract programs. Working with The Institute for Latin American Concern and Dr. Sebastian Guzman in Santiago, Dominican Republic, we have done over a thousand major retinal surgeries in the Dominican Republic. We are currently working with The Notre Dame University Keough School for Global Affairs and the Ecumenical Knights of Malta to expand the program to other countries. These and other surgical experiences are archived in The Vitreous Body Shop educational blog to help other surgeons address the severe retinal problems that they encounter.
We are also working with Figure 1, an outstanding new medical education forum, to help facilitate ophthalmology consults across the globe. Our plan is to help them to make doctors available to collaborate with each other, whether they are across town or across the globe. Figure 1 is a true game changer, and we are excited to be a part of it. Visit here, sign up, and configure the settings to focus on eye care.
