EyeCare 20/20, Short Hills Ophthalmology and the Laser Vision Center of New Jersey to Provide Cataract Surgery To 50 Patients this November
Date:10/29/2013

East Hanover, NJ (PRWEB) October 29, 2013

EyeCare 20/20, along with Short Hills Ophthalmology and the Laser Vision Center of New Jersey will perform cataract surgery at no cost for the fifth straight year during VisionHarvest 2013. VisionHarvest is a 501c3 nonprofit organization providing cataract surgery to those who need it, but have no insurance and can’t afford the procedure.

In September 2010, the United Status Census Bureau reported there was an estimated 50.7 million uninsured Americans- an all time high. As employers continue to shed jobs and reduce workforces, research experts speculate the problem will get far worse in the next few years leading up to the health care law that is scheduled to take effect in 2014.

“Individuals with cataracts and poor eyesight don’t have the time to waste to wait until the government steps in next year, these patients require medical intervention sooner rather than later,” said East Hanover ophthalmologist and Founder of Vision Harvest, Cary M. Silverman, M.D., who organized the program. “This year, our goal is to provide free cataract surgery to more than 50 vision-impaired people without insurance or financial resources.”

Over the next few months, participating eye physicians will evaluate prospective cataract patients and schedule them for their procedure. Eligible patients will have all eye examinations, testing, medications and surgery provided to them at no charge.

Participating ophthalmologists in this year’s Vision Harvest program include:

  •     Michael Farbowitz, M.D.- Short Hills Ophthalmology, Short Hills, NJ
  •     Kenneth Miller, M.D.- Laser Vision Center of New Jersey, West Orange, NJ
