Oregon Eye Specialists’ Vision to Serve – Dr. Kelly D. Chung
Throughout this season of giving, we want to honor our providers who have given their time serving in a variety of surgical outreach opportunities, both near and far. Our global outreach includes Dr. Kelly D. Chung who has traveled under the auspices of Health for Humanity to both Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia, and Tirana, Albania, to teach local ophthalmologists how to do advanced cataract surgery. She has gone to Fiji to the Mission at Natuvu to provide eye care including cataract surgeries to the local under-served population and is a member of Surgical Eye Expeditions International, which provides sustainable medical, surgical, and educational services through volunteer ophthalmic surgeons with the objectives of restoring sight and preventing blindness to disadvantaged individuals worldwide.
“I love helping my patients here in my local community see better every day, but helping people see better who have such advanced disease that they are functionally blind is a truly amazing privilege.” – Dr. Kelly Chung.
