One of the happiest patients during the outreach is seen here on the left.  After being blind for many years in both eyes, she underwent bilateral cataract surgery.  The expression on her face after we removed the patches was priceless.  Her outstretched neck attempts to take in as much of her new-found surroundings as possible.
