PHOTO ESSAY

Leland Lehman underwent cataract surgery at Eye Associates of Northern New Meixo recently. These days, cataract surgery is a  two-hour "out-patient" surgery with only 10 or 15 minutes of actual operation being performed. This is a photo essay of Lehman's surgery. Lehman said not only was the operation "way cool,"  the best part is now he can see again!
