Since 1984, the non-profit Hawaiian Eye Foundation has been dedicated to promoting the preservation, restoration, and improvement of vision for people of the Pacific Basin through charitable service, education, and research programs.
People of the Pacific Basin, because of isolation and impoverishment, are often unserved or underserved by eye care practitioners, and face urgent needs for the prevention and treatment of vision loss and blindness due to conditions such as cataracts, pterygium (related to sun exposure), diabetic retinopathy, and corneal trauma.

Compulink and co-sponsor Ocular Surgery News (OSN) are supporting practice consultant and OSN Section Editor John Pinto on his mission to support Hawaiian Eye Foundation through a "Voyage to EHR," a month-long solo trans-Pacific sailing adventure that John will undertake in 2012.
In addition to raising awareness for HEF's eye care and training work in the Pacific, John's voyage is meant to help educate and support the ophthalmic community in the transition many practices are making this year to Electronic Health Records (EHR).
