Job Description  

THE HELPMESEE MISSION  

HelpMeSee was founded in 2010 with the goal of eliminating the backlog of blindness caused by cataracts for every blind child and adult in the world, regardless of where they live or how underserved they may be. Our mission is to train local cataract specialists in Manual Small Incision Cataract Surgery also known as MSICS, in significant numbers, to meet the increasing demand for surgical services in the communities impacted by cataract blindness.   

We will support the training, qualification and practice readiness of these cataract specialists in partnership with health institutions, governments and major philanthropic and market ventures. To achieve this, we developed and are deploying high-fidelity eye surgery simulators, adapted from the successful experience of commercial airline simulators, to provide the resources needed to educate these cataract specialists in large numbers. Our goal is achieved, when all communities living in austere conditions have access to the essential cataract surgical care they need, that provides the best quality outcomes and is focused on patient safety.
