Missions to Honduras


Dr. Sondheimer recently returned from a medical mission to Honduras, where he and his colleagues successfully treated many underserved patients. Sponsored by two international relief agencies — Surgical Eye Expeditions International and Vision Outreach International — Dr. Sondheimer and his team restored eyesight for 17 individuals.

Surgical Eye Expeditions International and Vision Outreach International are leading humanitarian nonprofit agencies working to help children and adults all over the world gain access to quality medical care. They gather eye surgeons and other medical professionals to donate their time and skills to serve those in need.

This is not Dr. Sondheimer’s first medical mission. In fact, he has traveled to several countries to help less fortunate populations improve their vision and quality of life.

They just don’t have the resources to go out and get excellent care,” said Dr. Sondheimer. “What we do helps multiple generations. When you have the older person who can’t see anything, then often a young grandchild is spending his/her life caring for that person.

Prior to this, Dr. Sondheimer traveled to Vietnam where he not only helped eye care patients, but also lectured to Vietnamese eye doctors on modern refractive cataract surgery. To learn more about Dr. Sondheimer’s trip to Vietnam, please click here.
