Seva is the leading eye care provider in Tibet, performing two-thirds of the sight-restoring cataract surgeries. Dr. Larry Louie, internationally acclaimed photographer and optometrist, is a volunteer for Seva Canada and has generously donated his stunning images of Tibet so that people can receive the gift of sight.
