Understanding the Role of Culture to Provide Optimal Eye Care

On February 13, 2015
I recently returned from a trip to Myanmar and Bhutan, where I had the opportunity to visit some local hospitals and medical facilities. While traveling out of the country is always a great way to explore new environments and become immersed in different cultures, it is also an important reminder that the beliefs and values held by the locals – including their views on health care – are not entirely unlike the views of those who live in the United States, but are foreign-born or who belong to a specific ethnic group. In fact, many of our nation’s largest cities are becoming home to several of the world’s most unique populations and cultures.
