Help Babies in Bangladesh Live a Life of Light

Imagine growing up not knowing what a smile looks like, not knowing how blue the sky is. Sadly, this is the case for babies who are permanently blinded by Retinopathy of Prematurity, an emerging eye condition that affects premature and low birth weight babies.

Equipment Training

Equipment Practical Training Session

Orbis established Bangladesh's first ROP screening and treatment service centre and provided training, equipment and refurbishment to partners in Dhaka. 

We plan to expand this project to other regions of Bangladesh to reach more babies in need of eye care services. We will continue to educate neonatal teams on ROP, train surgeons, provide equipment, and raise awareness of ROP. Trained medical teams of our partners will continue to provide ROP screening and treatment.

Orbis is partnering with Dr K Zaman BNSB Eye Hospital in Mymensingh, Bangladesh, to train the ROP team, orientate hospital management staff, supply essential equipment, renovate the operating theatre, train NICU doctors and nurses
