Dr. Harris and his wife Micki have been involved in international outreach missionary work since starting practice in Salt Lake City in 2011. They work primarily with LDS Charities, visiting multiple countries to provide development and implementation of vision related projects. As of 2016, they were assigned to Chile, Uruguay, Argentina and Haiti, making 4-5 trips per year to teach oculoplastic surgery and deliver needed equipment. Their goal is to teach the local doctors the techniques they need to be self-sufficient in delivering care to their own people. Ultimately, they hope to not be needed in these countries as the local doctors become well skilled and independent. See our blog to read about our experiences over seas.
