LV Prasad Eye Institute vision specialists Dr Uday Kumar, Dr Veeru Pesala and our Ladakhi optometry technician trainees plan three major vision health care expeditions to Ladakh June > July, 2015.
Over the past two years humanitarian vision specialists from the prestigious LV Prasad Eye Institute in Hyderabad have traveled to Ladakh and worked to screen, educate and treat well over 3,000 patients. We plan to mobilize a formidable support team this summer so they can accomplish even more for the welfare of the people of the region.
Dr Uday Kumar & Dr Veeru Pesala with the principal of Lamdon School in Leh where they screened & treated over 1,000 of the students
Dr Uday Kumar & Dr Veeru Pesala at Siddhartha School in Stok Village where they screened & treated 600 of the students
LV Prasad Eye Institute vision team at Likir Monastery where they screened and treated all the monks of the monastery as well as hundreds of local residents
Continuing their groundbreaking role in forging an alliance between their LV Prasad Eye Institute in Hyderabad with our Himalayan Vision Project in Ladakh, Dr Uday Kumar and Dr Veeru Pesala will once again journey to Ladakh with additional vision specialists from LVPEI during June & July, 2015. We have numerous, ambitious remote vision camps planned in conjunction with international student groups from Canadian International School, The Tanglin Trust & Jakarta International School who’s students will be assisting logistically as well as raising funds for the vision expedition costs as part of their commitment to meaningful community service during their expedition to Ladakh.
We are all very much looking forward to welcoming our three optometry technician trainees Ms Dechen Yangdol, Ms Tondup Angmo and Ms Tsering Lhamo back to Ladakh as well. They have been fully immersed in their training at LVPEI for almost one year and now they will be accompanying Dr Kumar and Dr Veeru as skilled members of their team. The girls all graduate in August 2015 and then will return to Ladakh as full time members of The Himalayan Vision Project’s medical staff.
