Hi all, Unite For Sight has many new volunteer opportunities in Africa, Asia, Latin America, and Eastern Europe for the Fall, Winter, and Spring. Some opportunities are still available for the Summer, too. Opportunities are available in rural villages, urban locations, and refugee camps (including in the tsunami region). You can read about all of the opportunities at http://www.uniteforsight.org/intl_volunteer/ Unite For Sight volunteers implement outreach programs to prescribe eyeglasses, implement eye health education, and screen for cataracts, pterygium, and other eye diseases. All patients with eye disease are referred to the closest quality eye clinic for diagnosis, treatment, and surgery. This new form of delivery enables sustainable programs while simultaneously reducing all of the barriers to health care, including financial, transportation, and education hindrances. Unite For Sight's model also reduces costs and expands the ability of all people to "Unite For Sight" and help in the fight against blindness. The Unite For Sight programs are open to individuals 18 years and older, and there is no upper age limit. Undergraduate and medical students, public health professionals, nurses, educators, optometrists, and ophthalmologists are especially encouraged to apply.
