Patient Testimonials

Arthur, Florida; February 2020

Hello my name is Arthur Townes. I am 22 years old. My birthday is July 5, 1997. In July 2017 my father passed away the day before my birthday. My life went Into a downward spiral that I could not control. My girlfriend of six years and I had major issues in our relationship, My mom and I fell out, my siblings and I fell out, and my mom ended up being with one of my father’s best friends almost a year after his death.Life couldn’t of been more hectic. I wasn’t able to continue school due to the fact that financial aid stop funding me because I drop classes to take care of my father during his final months of living. Following His death I attempted to take care of myself more. I went and tried to use work insurance to do a routine check ups. After a visitation with my normal optometrist. I found out that I was going blind. After the exam I was told that I needed to get major insurance. Because the work insurance was only supplemental. That insurance had lapsed. The surgery cost would’ve been $4300. I wasn’t able to see very well at all so I couldn’t work full time. I had just about given up and I started researching  probono doctors and i couldn’t find anyone in Florida. I reached out to Mission cataracts and I was blessed. I am able to see once again and I can spread my wings and fly away to a new experience and finally start moving forward. This was created by me at my studio. My Label name and my artist name is I.G.Y.F. Which stands for I got you fam. And mission cataracts definitely had my back the whole way.

Mandy, Maine; October 2019

"Where do I begin? I can SEE!!! It’s amazing! I can drive, see people at the grocery store, and I’m applying for jobs as we speak! And guess what--there are LEAVES on the trees! I put my last drops in the second eye just days ago. I don’t know how or why I was fortunate enough to find MCUSA but it has transformed my life. Michael and I thank you and the organization from the bottom of our hearts. Here is a picture of me, so you can see that you helped an actual person lol!" 

Larry, Indiana; July 2019

"Words cannot express my joy! God bless Mission Cataract USA! I can drive again. I can see at the grocery store. I see leaves, flowers, faces! It's wonderful! Thank you."

Melody, New York; February 2019

"I can see without glasses now and haven’t been able to do that since I was 6 years old. I cannot begin to thank Mission Cataract USA for your help. You have no idea how elated I am and how much this has meant to me. I am amazed at how much clearer and brighter things are. It is a wonderful experience."

Kathleen, North Carolina; January 2019

"My eyesight is absolutely wonderful! My cataracts were so thick I was legally blind and without the surgery, I would most certainly be permanently blind. Mission Cataract took care of me and for that, I am truly grateful from the bottom of my heart."

Lois, South Carolina; January 2019

"I want to thank Mission Cataract USA for bringing me out of darkness into the light! Your financial help with my surgery made a great difference in my life. I don’t have to wear glasses anymore, and I’ve worn them since 1960. It feels like a miracle. Your generosity has changed my life for the better!"

Glenda, Texas; July 2018

"I’ve been looking for a better way to say “Thank You” and make you understand the depth of my appreciation, but I always come back to the biggest “Thank You” I could imagine. I just had my last checkup and can see 20/25. I am so happy and have never seen colors and shapes so clearly. I keep bottled water in a basket in the kitchen and one morning when I turned on the light and almost cried because the water and the bottles were sparkling and so beautiful. Every day has been this way since the first surgery. This is truly a miracle for me."

Kathy, North Carolina

"I had cataract surgery recently in July, and it was done by Dr. Harris @ Graystone Eye in Hickory, N.C. Thanks for helping me with this! The surgery went well, and I can see again clearly with two eyes! I am about to "graduate" per Dr. Harris, hopefully, next Fri.-? last visit. Thanks again for your help!"

Ron, New Jersey

"Thank you for your interest and encouragement... The surgery went without a hitch. Dr. Spear is a relaxed and self-assured surgeon who inspires confidence - a very generous man indeed. I was more than a little nervous at first [I've never had surgery in my life] but the attending nurses who prepped me for surgery assured me that there was nothing to worry about. Needless to say, I was amazed afterward at how well I could see again. On my post-surgery follow-up visit, I was told that there was very little inflammation on my eye and that it was healing rather well for barely a day after surgery. The examining physician was shocked to find from my chart that my vision had been 2400 prior to surgery. All in all, my experience at the Northern New Jersey Eye Institute has been very positive. My pre-surgery checkup was very thorough and I was highly impressed with all the technology being used. I was treated with respect and without any prejudice due to my status as a Mission Cataract sponsored patient. Again, thank you Sheree and everyone at Mission Cataract USA for making it all possible."
