Furthermore (left), is a 23-year-old who was orphaned. She was treated for bilateral cataracts after being blind for four years.
Throughout 2016, you and supporters across Canada gave beautiful miracles of sight. Cataract surgery is a relatively simple eye surgery. It takes just 10-12 minutes, and literally overnight a mom or granddad who has been blind for years, goes from blindness to sight.
The difference your 19,474 miracles of sight have made in lives and whole families is undeniable!
