Grand Rapids, MI (PRWEB) March 15, 2014

Billions of people across the globe live with limited or no access to proper vision care. Dr. Keil and Keil Lasik Vision Center are dedicated to helping the misfortunate gain access to the vision care they need. Dr. Keil works with Mercy Ships every year to help provide cataract and other vision-restoring surgeries.

To help these efforts Dr. Keil will be awarding a $500 Keil Lasik Medical Mission Grant to Nathan Cleaveland to use for a mission to Africa. Dr. Cleaveland is a resident in the Ophthalmology Residency Program at Metro Health Hospital in Grand Rapids, Michigan where Dr. Keil is the Residency Director. He will be traveling with Dr. Ralph Crew on a Mercy Ship to help people of Africa.

Mercy Ships was started in 1978 and is a global charity that operates hospital ships to bring hope and healing to the forgotten poor in developing nations. Their organization is based on serving all people without regard for race, gender, or religion; they even have a variety of crewmembers from experienced medical professionals to volunteers. Since then, they have impacted over 2.35 million people with life-transforming surgeries and community development.

Cataracts are the leading cause of blindness in adults worldwide. Dr. Keil realizes the impact cataracts can have on the quality of life and donates to Mercy Ships often in support of this cause. Backed by Keil Lasik Vision Center, Dr. Cleaveland and Dr. Crew will work to restore vision to dozens during their mission to Africa. They will spend their time with Mercy Ships restoring sight
to dozens of people by performing much needed cataract and other eye surgeries.
