Vision Harvest 2010: Free Cararact Surgery Date Set

Friday, October 22 will be the date for the second annual Vision Harvest free cataract surgery day at River Drive Surgery Center.  Cataract surgery will be provided free of charge to those patients with cataracts, who do not have insurance, and cannot afford the surgery.  Those interested should call the Vision Harvest Hotline at:


Last year,in our inaugural event, we were able to provide free cataract surgery to 20 patients.  Here is part 1 of interviews with some of the patients we were able to help last year.

I am hoping to treat many more this year.  If you know someone who can benefit from this program, please call or pass it along.

Over the next few months I will blog about more information concerning Vision Harvest as it comes available.

Cataract disease are expensive in maintaining medicine. I am happy that you have a free surgery of your cataract. And I also want to share something that might help you. A cataract starts out small and has little effect on vision but as the lens become more opaque, vision is blurred a little. Ultimately, clear vision is compromised and there is a significant loss of visual acuity. A cataract can also make light appear too bright or glaring due to its scattering inside the affected eye. Once cataracts have progressed enough to seriously impair vision, surgery is the best treatment option. Cataract surgery is a simple and relatively painless procedure yet it is very effective in restoring vision. In fact, it is the most frequently performed surgery in the U.S., with over three million Americans undergoing cataract surgery annually. mangosteen is loaded with powerful anti-oxidants called xanthones which can prevent damage to the lens caused by harmful free radicals. There are 200 types of xanthones known to man and mangosteen has 40 of those.

Kind Regards,
