O´RELLY NODA, Dunia et al. Advances in the application of sciences and technology in Cuban Ophthalmology and its current challenges. Rev.Med.Electrón. [online]. 2019, vol.41, n.6, pp.1516-1532.  Epub 31-Dic-2019. ISSN 1684-1824.

Through the times, Cuba has showed the greatness of its scientists and their advances and achievements. So early as from the beginning of 1830 there were commentaries on the advances in Cuban Ophthalmology and from those times Cuban scientists put the philosophic thought in function of the scientific research to accede to latest technology in the specialty. At the triumph of the Revolution in 1959, the development of Ophthalmology was almost inexistent, but in the current century the ophthalmological services of the country have the essential to affront the constant challenge of new technologies. The results of Mision Milagro, (Miracle Mission, the program organized by Cuban Government to heal ophthalmologic diseases in other countries like Venezuela, Ecuador and others) allow us to affirm that techno-sciences reduce the costs of the patients’ treatment and care regardless of their economic status. Cuba has showed that not only the monetary capital is important for the social development: human capital raises society to new dimensions. That is the political impact on the population benefited by the revolutionary advances in Cuban Ophthalmology.
