"Harry Brown, M.D., F.A.C.S. founded Surgical Eye Expeditions (SEE) International, Inc., in 1974. During his fellowship in the early 1970s, Dr. Brown worked with eye surgeons in Africa and Asia. Excited by the experience of healing people who traveled great distances for sight-restoring surgery, he realized the need for an efficient and sustained link between volunteer professionals and blind persons throughout the developing world.

"On August 24, 1974 with the help of Mr. William Crockett who served as the administrator for six years, SEE International, Inc. was officially formed to connect eye surgeons to patients in developing counties. To date, SEE International has provided the gift of sight to more than 400,000 individuals worldwide." [1]
