Cyber-Sight ® , ORBIS’s telemedicine program, provides ophthalmologists in developing countries the opportunity to connect with expert mentors through the internet. What started as a simple sequence of e-mail communications during a 1998 ORBIS program in Havana, Cuba, now makes it possible for ophthalmology professionals in developing countries to benefit from the knowledge and experience of ORBIS Volunteer Faculty whenever the need arises. Cyber- Sight® establishes an "extended presence," enabling ORBIS to further focus on transferring knowledge outside the parameters of the Flying Eye Hospital or hospital-based programs. ORBIS Volunteer Faculty offer online assistance to local doctors in diagnosing and treating patients while giving them the opportunity to grow their skills and confidence.
