Eyes On America Founder Dr. Kenneth Anthone and Eyes On America Chief Medical Officer Dr. Ephraim Atwal announced the foundation and Atwal Eye Care recently donated cataract surgeries for both eyes for 89-year-old Jamaican native Keith Fearon. These procedures were performed by Atwal at his office at 3095 Harlem Road, Cheektowaga.
Fearon now resides in Central New York's Mohawk Valley, as he had become sidelined with vision challenges due to cataracts. His church attendance had also been curtailed with vision difficulty.
The Eyes On America Foundation has donated more than 300 cataract surgeries for those in need locally, nationally and internationally.
