Why re

:

vision?

A case of leading surgeons deciding to do something different – the Re:Vision sight correction centre provides an unparalleled level of expertise and great eye care every day. And then they do more. When others have down time these guys go and do more pro bono cataract surgery for free, under the umbrella of ARCH (Auckland Regional Charity Hospital), bringing high quality medical care to those in serious need and have been denied care from the Public Hospital System. Because in their book everyone deserves the gift of sight.
