Financier and explorer Scott Hamilton participates in expeditions that drive cutting-edge technologies at extreme frontiers. He explains how his latest project to help remote Himalayan villagers regain their eyesight brought new meaning to his journeys.
Scott's expeditions drive advanced technologies at extreme frontiers — from the summit of Everest to the depths of the oceans. A lifelong passion for unsolved mysteries has racked up over 500 nights in the field — far from his work on Wall Street as a financial wizard. Recently, Scott's teams have been restoring eyesight to villagers in the high Himalayas.
Scott Hamilton argues that the best medical help that can be brought to the world is eyeglasses or cataract repair. Half of visual impairments can be easily corrected according to the World Health Organization.
