Nepalese Doctor Has Saved 100,000 People’s Sight


Nepalese eye doctor Sanduk Ruit has taken it upon himself to help people who can’t afford traditional health care. Over the decades, he has restored the eyesight of over 100,000 people with a simple procedure that would otherwise be unavailable to his patients.

Most of the blind suffer from cataracts, which he treats by making a small incision in the eye, removing the cloudy cataract, and replacing it with an artificial lens.

Aside from this, he and another doctor runs an eye hospital called ‘Tilganga’ in Kathmandu, where he treats traditional patients and state-of-the-art lenses are manufactured and exported to 30 countries worldwide.
