The organization's annual Gift of Sight Day was Nov. 25. Eye Associates surgeons performed all 20 procedures that Monday. Ms. Miguel's surgery took 10 minutes and gave her the ability to make out letters and numbers again. Before the procedure, she had trouble seeing whether the lights in rooms were on or off.
