Second Sight Non Medical Team

From 2009 Second Sight's volunteer English teachers went to the Akhand Jyoti Eye Hospital at Mastichak in Bihar. From 2012- 2015, Sheila Brockelbank (pictured with student Jyoti Shukla) organised a formal English Programme. It was crucial in helping hundreds of trainees gain their optometry qualifications.
