Mission to Costa Rica

Costa Rica

Dr. Allan Slomovic and Dr. Amandeep Rai completed an international ophthalmology outreach mission to Costa Rica to work with DOVS alumni Dr. Randall Ulate.  The team presented grand rounds to the University of Costa Rica's ophthalmology department, resident teaching and completed an outreach mission to the small town of Nicoya.  There, the team performed pterygium surgeries, phacoemulsification cataract extraction, and extracapsular cataract extraction, and also provided resident surgical training. Of course, they also had the opportunity to enjoy the remarkable natural beauty of Costa Rica!
