Operation Sight

According to the National Eye Institute, "by age 80, over half of all Americans either have a cataract or have had cataract surgery."  A cataract is a clouding of the lens of the eye that creates vision restrictions and can progress to the point of requiring a surgical correction to restore the vision. Operation Sight is a fantastic local non profit organization whose mission is to provide cataract surgery to those individuals who need financial assistance to afford this specialized procedure. Founded in 2011 by Dr. John Boatright, Dr. Paul Herring, and Dr. Kerry Soloman, Operation Sight has pooled a team of healthcare providers, volunteers, and community grants and donations to offer cataract surgery and life improvement to the individuals it assists. Pluff Mud Kids salute this dynamic organization and the impact it has on our community - come out this evening and help support their project.
