Infinite Vision is the story of Dr. V (Venkataswamy), the legendary eye surgeon from South India who made it his mission to restore sight to the blind and whose work has resulted in one of the world's most extraordinary models of service delivery. In a little over 25 years, Dr. V and his team have turned what started out as an 11-bed eye clinic in an old temple-city into the largest and most productive eye care facility in the world. Today the Aravind Eye Care System is an international resource and training center that is revolutionizing hundreds of eye care programs in developing countries.

It was a quiet night in the dessert. Even the mice weren’t around. A few LEDs blinked in the dark, and the sound of a fan filled the infinite void. The conversation cutting the silence seemed to go nowhere.
