Eye Program Counterpart Dr. Kevin Waltz: A Key Partnership to Restore Vision

This week, Dr. Kevin Waltz, ophthalmic surgeon counterpart for CAMO’s Eye Program, visited our Honduran clinics to perform eye surgeries for the benefit of the local community.

During this visit, Waltz performed surgeries on 12 patients with various eye conditions.

Dr. Linda Vásquez, a third-year ophthalmology resident at CAMO’s Eye Clinic, highlighted Dr. Waltz’s career both in the United States and Honduras, where he has collaborated with CAMO’s program in the region.

“Dr. Waltz is an ophthalmic surgeon with extensive experience in procedures such as cataract surgery and eye plastic surgery,” stated Dr. Vásquez, who detailed that the partnership with CAMO and the doctor has been crucial for many people to regain their vision in Honduras.

The two-day surgical event is supported by Honduran nursing staff and 5 specialist doctors.

The Eye Program was established in 1993 with the goal of combating reversible blindness caused by cataracts. Over the years, other services have been implemented to address a variety of eye conditions, including glaucoma, retina problems, diabetes, and hypertension, as well as traumas, infections, and ulcers caused by workplace accidents.

Dr. Kevin Waltz’s visit highlights CAMO’s and its collaborators’ commitment to providing quality eye care to those in need in Honduras.
