    US, Tanzania work together during MEDRETE 2012

    A U.S. Army ophthalmologist prepares to remove a cataract from a citizen of Zanzibar, Tanzania. The surgery uses a suture-less cataract surgical technique known as Extracapsular Cataract Extraction, which is a low-tech, inexpensive technique used in austere operating environments. This cataract surgery was used during Medical Readiness and Training Exercise, a U.S. Army Africa exercise that improves the relationship with host nation medical providers and provides free medical services to local citizens in need of treatment.
