On Preventing Blindness - A Conversation with Dr. Sanduk Ruit & Thomas Bosshard
On this episode, I talk with world renowned eye surgeon, founder and executive director of the Tilganga Institute of Ophthalmology in Kathmandu: Dr. Sanduk Ruit; and with co-owner of Oertli Instrumente AG, a Swiss-based medical device company: Thomas Bosshard. Both Dr. Ruit and Thomas have been carrying out impactful work in the field of cataract surgery. In our conversation, they share how they established a long-lasting collaboration leading to philanthropic activities. Dr. Ruit and Thomas speak very passionately about their work, how they see cataract surgery evolving, and they also give some advice to students interested to start a career in ophthalmology or the medical device industry.
