LASIK for Missions


Funding for missionaries or for missions projects is always a complicated endeavor. We propose initiating open source refractive surgery projects to benefit the poor while generating local funding to subsidize mission works all over the world.

The idea would be to plant excimer laser systems in developing areas where there are juxtaposed poor and rapidly developing middle/upper class populations, and where refractive has not penetrated the local market . Training programs involving visiting U.S. specialists could teach other local providers who then could rent a laser system from the mission, providing long-term sustainability for a mission clinic while providing funding for further development or launching new projects.
