This was one of our patients during a surgical outreach campaign. Complications from her first cataract surgery years ago left her with just one eye. This one remaining “good” eye was blind from a cataract for at least two years before she came to us. Two years. A 10 minute surgery by John Cropsey reversed her blindness. This is her the next day, now able to walk on her own.
