Ophthalmology has an abundance of unsung heroes who save sight, sometimes overcoming great challenges to deliver medical and surgical eye care. In 2020, the Academy is featuring stories about some of these heroes. Their colleagues nominated them for quietly serving the underserved, mentoring the next generation and sharing their skills with the world.
Why Dr. Gupta is an unsung hero: “He has a rich experience in his field having performed over 75,000 eye surgeries. A lion’s share of those surgeries were humanitarian. His innovative skills have led to development of 30 high-quality ophthalmic devices, which are available to Indian and international communities at a reasonable cost.”
