JACS – Cataract Surgery in the Developing World

Tuesday, July 27

Jeremy Joseph retired as a Consultant Ophthalmologist (eye doctor) in the U.K. recently, having worked for the NHS and privately for many years. In 1993 he started undertaking eye expeditions to perform cataract surgery in developing countries. The places he has visited include Brazil, Myanmar, Byelorus, Namibia, Papua New Guinea, Liberia, Zambia, Zimbabwe, Uganda, Haiti, Ecuador, and Bangladesh. This activity has been temporarily halted by the Covid pandemic but he hopes to resume the expeditions soon.
