About Fred Hollows

Fred Hollows: Life, Work and Legacy
Fred once said,

" I studied medicine 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."
