Into the Light documents the heroic work of volunteer Canadian ophthamologists, nurses and medical technicians who travel to the developing world to teach eye surgery and perform miracles. Working with the non-profit organization, ORBIS, sight-saving surgery is performed aboard its “flying eye hospital”, a reconfigured DC-10 aircraft. The ORBIS doctors also work in rural eye care clinics and help establish Eye Banks throughout the developing world. Into the Light follows several Canadian doctors and nurses who took part in an ORBIS mission to Tanzania and Ethiopia in September, 2003. Written and directed by Peter Raymont.
