    Flying Eye Hospital aims to prevent blindness worldwide





    Model Cindy Crawford attended the MD-10 christening event on June 4, 2016, which also marked the official retirement of Orbis' second-generation flying hospital, the DC-10 aircraft. Crawford visited the DC-10 in late 2014 to see the work that ophthalmologists were doing when she was in Peru. Her visit was made into a documentary film by Omega called "The Hospital in the Sky."

    Since then, Crawford—brand ambassador for Omega—has partnered with Orbis in its mission to fight preventable blindness around the world. Omega has supported Orbis since 2011.
