Pope Francis Focuses on Cataract Surgery in 2019
As an eye surgeon, I have performed thousands of cataract procedures over the course of my career. While I no longer practice regularly, I do still conduct free surgeries both in Kentucky and internationally. In years past, I have traveled with the Moran Eye Center to Guatemala and Haiti to perform hundreds of free cataract removal surgeries. The 81-year-old pope should not worry about his plans to undergo cataract surgery next year, as it is a very standard procedure.
