Dr. Karl Holzinger’s visit to NCEH

In February, Northern Community Eye Hospital had the privilege of hosting Dr. Karl Holzinger, a highly experienced American ophthalmologist renowned for his dedication to eye care in developing nations. Over the course of two weeks, Dr. Holzinger actively engaged in patient consultations, conducted community screenings, and performed a remarkable total of 154 surgeries addressing cataracts and pterygium.

His expertise not only enriched our medical endeavors but also left a lasting impact on our community. Patients and staff alike were deeply moved by his compassionate approach and gentle demeanor, which made a significant difference in their experience.

We are deeply grateful to See International for their generous provision of essential surgical supplies, empowering Dr. Holzinger to carry out his vital work with effectiveness and impact. Their unwavering support has played a crucial role in our mission to elevate vision care and positively impact lives.
