Mr. Atma Tyagi, a 78-year-old patient who underwent cataract surgery, sums up his experience with the program, "My eyesight has improved a lot and I feel blessed... But for you and (my doctor) I might still be groping in the darkness and stumbling throughout the rest of my life."
Tyagi's ophthalmologist, Dr. Jerome Gabry, Silver Springs, MD, has gotten a similar sense of satisfaction by volunteering. "I'm pleased I'm able to assist EyeCare America patients so they feel they have a better quality of life. What makes volunteering for EyeCare America worthwhile is all the grateful patients."
Jerome Gabry, MD is an EyeCare America volunteer ophthalmologist and Atma Tyagi is an EyeCare America-referered patient.
