        The Secret Life of Scientists & Engineers | Geoff Tabin

        Meet global ophthalmologist Geoff Tabin in this video profile from NOVA’s “The Secret Life of Scientists & Engineers.” His early career goal was to become a mountain guide; however, when he traveled to Nepal, he realized that there was a need to help the blind. Ninety percent of blind people come from the poorest countries in the world, and 85% of those people are curable. Today, Geoff travels around the world curing blindness by performing cataract surgeries. Aside from changing thousands of lives, he also invented bungee jumping. This resource is part of the NOVA: Secret Life of Scientists & Engineers Collection.
