That's actually a pretty apt comparison, because last year, the organization took its services to a leper colony in Eastern Ethiopia. Hundreds of people lined up. Some had to set up camp for days to get the operation. The doctors didn't leave them out in the cold, though. Coordinators gave them food, which is a service you definitely won't get at an Apple product launch -- and unlike any Apple product, the lenses they use only cost $4. For the price of four bags of Corn Nuts, someone can see for the first time in years. Granted, Corn Nuts are delicious, but you've really got to go with the cure for blindness on this one.
This is a major asset in countries like Ethiopia. There just aren't that many eye doctors for a country of over 100 million people, so untreated vision problems contribute to immense poverty there and in similar regions. If the treatment goes mainstream, it could help people everywhere see better. We're making progress toward a future wherein every single human will be able to watch Knives Out -- which, we can't stress enough, looks super dope.
