Unsung Heroes: Martin Spencer, MD

In 1986, when Martin Spencer, MD, signed up as a volunteer to bring eye care to people in remote areas of the world, he was unsure what he, an ophthalmologist from Canada, had to offer. Over the next 35 years, he would give so much and with such humility that a Tibetan monk called him the “true embodiment of Buddha.” We are so proud that Seva Canada Board Member, Dr. Martin Spencer has been recognized as an Unsung Hero by the American Academy of Ophthalmology
