ABOUT FRED HOLLOWS

FRED HOLLOWS: LIFE, WORK AND LEGACY

Fred once said,
" I studied madicine so I could help others-set a leg or whatever and its given me a great deal of satisfaction." But setting legs was not what  Professor Fred Hollows ended up doing...

Fred had done an eye term at medical school and, as a result, he assisted eye surgeons at Auckland Public Hospital in his first job after graduating.

At the same time, he had growing interest in practicing in Africa- "there seemed to be a crying need for properly run clinics, free of political or church  influence" - and someone told him if you were to be useful in Africa you had to  know how take out cataract because there was a lot of cataract blindness."
