We're thrilled to announce that the world’s only flying ophthalmic teaching hospital will make its inaugural landing in Lakeland, FL at #SNF20! Orbis International's Flying Eye Hospital is an MD-10 aircraft that travels the world providing first-rate surgical services to those in need as well as ophthalmology training, presentations, and live surgical demonstrations to eye care professionals in low- and middle-income countries. The aircraft will be on display and open for tours all week at SUN 'n FUN March 31 to April 5!

The Orbis Flying Eye Hospital is a state-of-the-art medical teaching facility complete with an operating room, classroom and recovery room. This third-generation Flying Eye Hospital allows world-leading medical volunteers to travel far and wide sharing their knowledge with and developing the skills of hard-to-reach communities that need it most. Orbis’s telemedicine platform, Cybersight, expands its reach even further.

The Aerospace Center for Excellence (ACE) and Orbis share a core belief that positive actions taken today impact the future. ACE’s aerospace education programs and scholarships are addressing the ever-increasing demand for aerospace professionals. Orbis is addressing avoidable blindness and visual impairment. Come join us at #SNF20 to see it!
