Free surgeries offered for uninsured with cataracts
Sacramento Bee

Free eye surgeries will be available this spring for uninsured people whose vision is clouded by cataracts.

Kaiser Permanente staff have offered this service annually for 17 years as part of Mission Cataract USA, a national program in which participating doctors provide the sight-restoring surgery to people who have no health insurance and can’t afford the operation.

Sacramento-area residents who are interested in the surgery must sign up for a screening by calling (916) 973-7159.
