Southern California Logistics Airport, the City of Victorville, The Lions club  and Orbis had a party tonight.

If you haven't heard about Orbis you should.  It is the only ONLY  Flying Eye Hospital in the world.

The City of Victorville has adopted Orbis. The Southern California Logistics Airport is performing a class B maintenance on the plane. The Lions Club is raising funds for it. Someone from Spring Valley lake donated $10,000.

Tonight there were about 500 people at one of the Hangers at the airport having a party and celebrating 25 years of orbis the brain Child of Dr David Patton. Live music, food from several of our great local restaurants and lots of fun.

A tour of the plane is impressive. The Program of the OFEH is even more impressive. Volunteers, non paid doctors on vacation man the plane as they can in it year long flight of healing and education. Put an underline on the word education. With the barage of cameras on board recording every operation and the student-doctors of that county able to ask questions while the procedure takes places. Orbis teaches local doctors the operation technicals that enable bringing sight to an otherwise blind person. 

It is reported that 36,000,000 people in the world are blind. 75% of them are curable.


"OFEH boasts an OT, a recovery room, TV room, administrative room, engineering department. There are 16 cameras and 24 monitors on the plane, besides, state-of-the-art equipment like slit lamps, ret cam, yag lasers and argon lasers, etc. The team of experts consists of 11 ophthalmologists, two nurses, on orthoptist, on anaesthesiologist and one eye banking personnel. There is also a team of biomedical engineers. Interestingly, all of these personnel are from diversified nationalities giving a global feel."

Once again there was a spotlight on Victorville as our mayor spoke.  It was good to visit SCLA which will become a powerhouse of the ecomony in the High Desert. I also got to view the Decommissioned 727 that was donated by Fed EX.
