Increased police presence is anticipated in Center City throughout Tuesday afternoon and evening. Please allow extra time if you are going to Wills Eye. Please be advised of area street closures to vehicles beginning at 1:00PM on Tuesday 9/15. Pedestrian access will also be limited in the area. This is subject to change and area restrictions, which could widen, will be lifted once the President departs the NCC. There are also demonstrations planned for Tuesday 9/15 around Independence Mall as well as City Avenue.

Of course, many of these missions would not be possible without the support of amazing humanitarian organizations that help supply me and my colleagues with the materials we need. SEE International in particular has been exceedingly supportive of our cause.

Twice a year, Wills Eye Hospital surgeons pair with SEE International to educate American ophthalmologists about the MSICS cataract procedure. These are some photos from our course last fall. There is another upcoming one in late April. We will also be running an MSICS course at the upcoming AAO meeting this fall. If you are an ophthalmologist interested in learning more about the MSICS technique, please let us know!
