The demand for surgeons, assistants and nurses is rising steadily with the spread of information about the ways eye disorders can be healed.
So in collaboration with the University of Nairobi (which, by the way, trains the eye specialists who comprise a crucial proportion of the ophthalmologists practising in Africa and whose training is paid for by funding from Light for the World), the Kikuyu Eye Unit trains a large number of assistants every year. Once the young locals have completed their training they have a range of options. But first they can work in Kikuyu to gain practical experience in carrying out medical check-ups and take care of the administrative work to relieve the fully qualified Ophthalmologists of other tasks. So they, in turn, can devote their undivided attention to more complicated surgery.
