What do Unite For Sight volunteers do? Unite For Sight’s Volunteer
Abroad Program is an immersive global health experience for students and
professionals who are interested in public health, international
development, medicine, or social entrepreneurship. Volunteers
participate with and learn from Unite For Sight's talented local partner
doctors who have provided care to nearly 1.8 million patients living in
poverty, including more than 80,000 sight-restoring surgeries.
Volunteers assist with patient education, visual acuity testing, patient
intake, distributing the glasses and medication prescribed by the local
eye doctors, and other important support tasks. They also have the
opportunity to observe the surgeries provided by the local doctors.
Additionally, volunteers may participate in the Global Impact Lab, an
optional program for those interested in pursuing research. For example,
we currently have volunteers pursuing research studies about medication
management, the use of visual resources for patient education,
traditional medicine practices, and patient barriers to eye care. More details are available on the website.
