The Lighthouse for Christ Eye Center and Mission - Ongoing Need for Ophthalmologists

Lighthouse BowmanThe Lighthouse for Christ Eye Center and Mission has a long tradition of providing world-class eye care to the many thousands of patients who enter their front door each year in Mombasa, Kenya. In order to provide their patients with the best possible care, they count on visiting volunteer doctors to come and teach their Kenyan national doctors new techniques, medical treatments, and technology. Their Kenyan national doctors are well-trained and highly skilled, but they are not always afforded the many educational opportunities experienced by doctors outside of Kenya. Subspecialty volunteers in Cornea, Pediatric Ophthalmology, Glaucoma, Oculoplastics and Retina can provide their doctors with new skills that can be put to use immediately. The general ophthalmologist, optometrist, nurse, and technician can all find their skills highly utilized and appreciated during their stay at the Lighthouse Mission.

Most volunteers come to Mombasa for one or two weeks. There are opportunities to assist the staff and national doctors in the clinic, in the operating theater, and on outreach rural eye camps. They have very nice accommodations on their mission compound and encourage volunteers to bring their families. Many of the medical volunteers will remain in Kenya after their time at the mission to go on Safari at the nearby Masai Mara game preserve.

If interested, go to their website to learn more and contact their stateside Director of Volunteers, Dr. Larry Kenney, an ophthalmologist at Eye Consultants of Pennsylvania, with any questions (lkenney23@verizon.net).

LusakaEyeHospitalOR edited

The Lusaka Eye Hospital in Lusaka, Zambia is in need of an Comprehensive Ophthalmologist / Medical Director / Administrator!

The current Ophthalmologist will be completing a 6 year commitment and would like to hand off the practice to someone who will continue what she has established.

Highlights
The official language of Zambia is English, so there is no need to learn another language!
Also, there would be minimal fund raising. You would receive a local salary covered by the Lusaka Eye Hospital (you may need outside funding to cover U.S.-side expenses).

The Lusaka Eye Hospital was founded in 2001 by 3 NGOs and the Seventh Day Adventist church as a healthcare institution of the Seventh-day Adventist Church. Today, they provide eye care services for more than 20,000 patients each year!

Their mission is to reflect the character of Jesus Christ while working hard at providing excellent eye care and restoring physical sight. By God’s grace they endeavor to become self-supporting and restore spiritual sight to anyone in need.

Optometrist needed in Jamaica!

They are seeking a full time Optometrist to serve on their Jamaican team and partner in both the private practices (Professional Eye Care) and non-profit (Mission of Sight) in Jamaica. While this position offers a professional clinical setting, it also requires the Optometrist to demonstrate a heart of compassion and willingness to serve in a Christian faith-based organization to the people in need of therapeutic, surgical, and primary vision care in Jamaica.

MSICS Training for Surgeons

voi

GSA logow tagl

There is tremendous need for a very good cataract procedure where phacoemulsification technology is either not available or too expensive to provide to the masses that need surgery. Manual Small Incision Cataract Surgery (MSICS) is the perfect surgery for much of the world: it is inexpensive, effective, produces minimal astigmatism, sutureless, safe, relatively quick to perform and is relatively simple to learn with good instruction. If you have an interest in doing medical missions in the future, strongly consider MSICS training. Our friends at Global Sight Alliance and Vision Outreach International would love to assist you!
