Looking back at 2010, in this Feb.13, 2010 file photo, Raj Kaliya Dhanuk lies still on a bed with weights on her eye after receiving local anesthesia at Hetauda community eye hospital, Hetauda, about 40 kilometers (18 miles) south of Katmandu, Nepal.

Looking back at 2010, in this Feb.13, 2010 file photo, Raj Kaliya Dhanuk lies still on a bed with weights on her eye after receiving local anesthesia at Hetauda community eye hospital, Hetauda, about 40 kilometers (18 miles) south of Katmandu, Nepal. Dhanuk and more than 500 others, most of whom have never seen a doctor before, have traveled for days by bicycle, motorbike, bus and even on their relatives' backs to reach Dr. Sanduk Ruit's mobile eye camp. Nepalese master surgeon Ruit estimates sight has been restored to 3-4 million people through his assembly-line approach. Once condemned by the international medical community as unthinkable and reckless, this mass surgery 'in the bush' started spreading from Nepal to poor countries worldwide nearly two decades ago.
