Deadline to qualify for free cataract surgery is Friday, April 24, call 793-2211 as early as possible.
Eye Center South offers free cataract surgeries. Just rush in within Friday, April 24, otherwise you will miss the bus.
Eye Center South provides free cataract surgeries each year to visually impaired people who would otherwise go untreated due to lack of insurance or other financial constraints.
The free surgeries will be performed by Drs. William L. Bennett and Marnix E. Heersink on Wiregrass patients who qualify for this Gift of Sight program.
Heersink first introduced the program to the Wiregrass in 1992, after which Bennett joined him.
Potential patients may call to see if they qualify. Many are referred from participating optometrists who provide free post-op care.
Eye Center South’s work is part of a nationwide program known as Mission Cataract USA, a national program created in 1991 to bring eye doctors, surgeons and volunteers together to provide free vision services to those in need.
For more information about the Gift of Sight program and to learn about the patient qualifications, call your eye doctor or Eye Center South at 793-2211.
