From Jet Engines to Search Engines, ORBIS-FedEx-Indiana University Join Forces to Fight Unnecessary Childhood Blindness
Date:7/7/2008

Reap, Cambodia. "I've already learned a lot and it's now the turning point of my life-long journey to save sight in Cambodia. I hope my colleagues back home will have similar opportunities in the future."

Medical connections online and on airplanes

Long before the FedEx fellowship was awarded, Dr. Khauv and Dr. Neely formed a unique alliance online, via Cyber-Sight(c), ORBIS' telemedicine initiative which uses the Internet to connect doctors throughout the world with ORBIS volunteer ophthalmologists for professional mentoring, patient care consultation and online continuing medical education.

"For doctors like Khauv, Cyber-Sight is the best way to connect with other medical professionals," explained Dr. Eugene Helveston, founding director of IU's pediatric ophthalmology department and founder and director of ORBIS Cyber-Sight. "With a very simple investment -- a computer, digital camera and internet access -- doctors around the world can email photos and questions about patients to more experienced doctors who mentor them free of charge."

Drs. Khauv and Neely initially met during a series of ORBIS training initiatives in Vietnam where Dr. Neely had been invited to give lectures and surgical demonstration. It was here that Dr. Khauv learned of ORBIS Cyber-Sight and became the first Cambodian doctor enrolled. Drs. Khauv and Neely were matched up, and, in the years that have followed, the two have collaborated online on more than 30 surgical cases.

In December 2006, the doctors reunited during the first-ever ORBIS Flying Eye Hospital program in Cambodia, aboard the ORBIS DC-10 aircraft, which contains a modern ophthalmic surgical suite. Onboard Drs. Khauv and Neely operated on patients whose cases they had been discussing online via Cyber-Sight. It was during this Flying Eye Hospital program -- a program sponsored by FedEx -- that Dr. Khauv became a FedEx Fellow following a thorough review of potential candidates by an advisory group
