Our heroes

Dr. Praveen

Dr. Praveen has been working in eye health for the past seven years and decided to do medicine as he likes to help people. He states that the most rewarding aspect of his career is whenever a patient says that they are feeling good after he has given treatment.

His most memorable moment as a doctor was when he started a job as the project manager of a Retinopathy of Prematurity (ROP) project. Retinopathy of Prematurity affects premature babies and can result in blindness. When he first began treating ROP patients, he witnessed the profound impact this condition can have, but also the very real difference timely treatment can make. His felt very happy and proud of this work.

Dr. Praveen is now working full time to monitor and implement the Qatar Creating Vision Project in Pune, India. He is also working on staffing and organising a brand new hospital in a rural area outside of Pune city. There is a sever lack of hospitals in such areas and this new site will bring treatment options closer to home for many people.

Dr. Praveen says: “I want to thank NGO’s like Orbis that create awareness on eye healthcare and diseases…in our country we need support from such charities to be able to offer our services to poor people.”
