Glaucoma is one of the leading causes of preventable blindness. Sight For All’s In-Country Fellowship Program and Sub-specialty fellowships undertaken in Australia are helping to address this blinding disease. Where doctors from our partner countries have difficulty passing the English language test to enable them to undertake a fellowship in Australia, Sight For All’s team of Visionaries goes to them. Dr Graham Lee is a Sight For All Visionary and Glaucoma specialist from Queensland, Australia. Dr Lee played an integral role in Sight For All’s Lao In-Country Glaucoma Fellowship undertaken in 2013/2014.
“The trip was inspirational and was a reminder to me of why I studied medicine. As doctors we are at the frontline and can make significant changes for the better in people’s lives. The work that Sight for All has done in Laos and other parts of Southeast Asia is truly making a fundamental impact on building the expertise required by the doctors in these regions to ensure sustainable delivery of the highest possible standard of ophthalmic care for the future.”– Dr Graham Lee, Queensland
