Locations & Dates: Eye Care Professionals

Unite For Sight's programs are locally led and managed by our partner eye clinics that provide year-round high quality eye care and continuity of care for patients living in extreme poverty. Unite For Sight Global Impact Fellows work on a daily basis with local ophthalmic nurses, optometrists, and ophthalmologists to support and assist the clinic in outreach programs that provide care to patients living in extreme poverty. The programs in which Global Impact Fellows participate are sustainable, apply best practice principles in global health and development, and achieve effective change.

Volunteer optometrists and ophthalmologists apply their skills and training to provide eye care to patients alongside the local eye doctors. Optometrists share knowledge and skills with local optometrists and ophthalmic nurses, while ophthalmologists provide surgical training and skills transfer to local ophthalmologists.
