Dr Pierre Quinodoz, reconstructive and plastic surgeon in Geneva, led the first 2012 mission at the Moka Eye Hospital. He followed-up patients he had operated during his first mission last year and examined new patients. During his stay, Dr Quinodoz operated 13 patients in need of reconstructive ocular surgery, six of whom were children and teenagers. Dr Quinodoz says he is impressed by the high level of organisation of the operating team and by the willingness of the local surgeons to carry on this collaboration.


Professor André Roth, Dr Moïra Bumbacher, Dr Harry Roux and Francine Huguenin, orthoptist, carried the second mission in Mauritius. This mission was focused on examining and operating patients suffering from strabismus problems. Surgeries are performed together with Dr Sunita Gunnoo Kowlessur from the Moka Eye Hospital.
