Welcome to the third episode of Beyond 2020, the series that looks at strategies to eliminate avoidable blindness in countries with developing eyecare services and shares ideas and solutions to common difficulties in working abroad. Today, we look at rural populations and ask: how remote is too remote?

Choosing the right strategy for cataract surgery in countries with developing eyecare services can be difficult. Should you stay in the cities or work more remotely? How remote can you go and still carry out surgery safely. In this episode, Beyond 2020 examines the options.
