VHI field programs offer the experience of a lifetime. We work with people who have little to no access to eye care and are grateful for the high-quality care we provide. We change the lives of our patients, who before seeing us are often unable to live independently or perform daily tasks on their own, have new chances in life after seeing us and receiving cataract surgery or eyeglasses. We are always looking for qualified professionals to join us on our rewarding field programs. We typically bring ophthalmologists, optometrists, opticians, ophthalmic techs, scrubs, circulators, pre and post op caregivers, operating room supervisors, autoclave and instrument sterilization assistants, interpreters, and field vision screening volunteers. The cost for volunteers is $650 for doctors and $450 for all other roles. Volunteers are responsible for their own round trip airfare to and from the main city. VHI provides all essential in-country expenses related to food, lodging, and transportation.
