Physicians with Minnesota Eye Consultants performed free cataract surgery on 10 patients last week, with another 10 surgeries scheduled soon, according to a KARE11 report.

Thomas Samuelson, MD, and his team at Minnesota Eye Consultants have been providing free eye surgeries two Saturdays per year for under- or uninsured patients through Operation Eyesight.

The surgeries take about 10-20 minutes and cost about $75,000-$100,000 per day. The surgery center also performs free surgeries for glaucoma, corneal transplants and more.
