Brown, MD, FACS, Medical Director of Surgical Eye Expeditions (SEE) International, Santa Barbara, Calif; Paris Royo, MD, Sacramento, Calif; and Emil F. Wright, Jr, MD, Auburn, Ala, participated in a voluntary eye surgery clinic in Sofia, Bulgaria, in July 1993. The clinic, which was organized by SEE International and sponsored by the Johnson & Johnson family of companies, operated on over 60 blind persons. Founded in 1974, SEE International is a nonprofit organization that recruits and deploys volunteer ophthalmologists, nurses, and technicians to surgically restore the sight of indigent blind persons throughout the developing world. In 1992, SEE volunteers completed 11 161 sight-restoring surgeries in 27 countries.
