David G. Miller, MD of Retina Associates volunteers for "Flying Eye Hospital" work in the Philippines

David G. Miller, MD recently returned from Davao, Philippines on a stint as Volunteer Faculty for a special program sponsored by Orbis International which operates the Flying Eye Hospital (FEH), a fully equipped mobile teaching hospital. On the outside, the plane looks like most other aircraft. Inside, however, it hosts an ophthalmic hospital and teaching facility right on board.

This is a unique teaching experience for local eye care professionals on board the FEH, which is the only wide-body DC-10 jet of its kind.
