As part of its Vision Care Signature Program, LDS Charities sends technical specialists around the world to increase the quality and availability of vision care in underserved communities. One of these specialists, Dr. Jeff Pettey, visited Tbilisi, Georgia, in December 2014 to partner with local eye care professionals.
While there, he visited a Lions Eye Clinic to meet with medical residents and provide surgical training. He’d brought the Kitaro wet lab simulation tool and several Simuleye simulators for each of the residents to practice surgical simulations.
