Surgical Eye Expeditions (SEE) International is pleased to announce the promotion of Luis Perez to director of operations.

Perez came to SEE International three years ago, and he has more than six years of nonprofit experience.

Perez oversees all international programs, including the planning, coordination and implementation of all yearly overseas operations. His oversight is crucial in ensuring increased access to free or low-cost restorative surgical eye care.

He is prepared to advance SEE International’s mission of restoring sight and transforming lives through the dozens of expeditions every month.

Perez received his bachelor of arts degree in global and international studies from UCSB. During his studies at UCSB, he learned the need for Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs) like SEE International.

Recently, Perez visited northeastern India on one of SEE International’s expeditions to see firsthand the effects of cataracts on underprivileged blind people.

Under the direction of Perez, SEE International looks to increase its yearly output of 11,000-plus surgeries, across 35-plus countries and more than 145 expeditions.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.
