Dr. Barbara Wolock recently traveled to El Progreso, Honduras to perform cataract surgery at a local clinic. Dr. Wolock performed 20 surgeries over three days and saw patients in the clinic as well. She was able to bring two of her children along with her - Anna, 16, and Charlie, 24. Anna helped out in the pre-op area and Charlie served as a translator in the operating room during surgery.
Dr. Wolock is trained in manual small incision cataract surgery (MSICS), a cataract procedure adapted for the developing world. MSICS can be performed safely and effectively without all of the equipment that is available to us in our U.S. hospitals. Dr. Wolock has travelled to Vietnam, Ghana, and Mexico on past medical mission trips.
