These two eye surgeons have restored sight to more than 25,000 people in 24 countries. The bigger achievement was that the doctors that they have trained, have restored sight to 4 million people!
Their main mission is to cure and eradicate preventable blindness in developing nations.
Dr. Tabin said that:
"You know, once someone goes blind in a developing world, their life expectancy is about one-third that of age and health matched peers. And also in the developing world, it takes, often, a person out of the work force, or a child out of school, to care for the blind person. So when we restore sight to a blind person, we're freeing up their family and restoring their life."
Dedicated doctors like Dr. Tabin and Dr. Sanduk gave us hope that there is still faith in humanity.
