What started as a simple sequence of e-mail communications during a 1998 ORBIS program to Havana, Cuba, evolved into a full-fledged telemedicine program called Cyber-Sight in 2003. Today, Cyber-Sight makes it possible for ophthalmologists in developing countries to benefit from the knowledge and experience of ORBIS volunteer faculty whenever the need arises.
E-Resources is an electronic "library" of educational materials including books, manuals, videos, case presentations, and other specially prepared website material available free and geared to any ophthalmologist or eye care healthcare provider worldwide.
E-Learning allows enrolled users to have access to on-line course material covering basic and advanced concepts in ophthalmology, to demonstrate proficiency in the material covered, and to receive a certificate of completion.
E-Consultation links partners with expert mentors for patient consultation and to enhance selection of patients before program visits by ORBIS volunteer doctors. The program assists with diagnosis while discussing effective methods for treatment and assisting partners by adding to their skills for management of future patients.
