The 1st Myanmar Eye Meeting was held in 2014 with our partners: Yangon Eye Hospital, Zeiss and American Vision. Because of it’s success, HEF was invited back again this year.
The 2nd Myanmar Eye Meeting was a huge success! Thank you to our team of 19 faculty (10 ophthalmologists, 9 ophthalmic techs) and additional volunteers who just returned from Yangon! Over the week, 8 different sub-specialists each held a lecture series, patient consultations session and did surgery demonstrations. A total of 100+ examinations and 33 surgery demonstrations were conducted. HEF also hosted 42 Burmese residents in a skills transfer course of 9 different topics. Over 100 local ophthalmologists attended MEM 2015 and learned skills to take back to their patients.
