Dr. Colby Stewart Releases Documentary Video
Date:7/27/2013

Houston, TX (PRWEB) July 27, 2013

Houston ophthalmologist Dr. Colby Stewart recently released a documentary that tells the story of a patient who's life had been changed by severe cataracts. The short documentary reflects the collaborative efforts of the Houston Eye Foundation and the surgical expertise of Dr. Colby Stewart to help a man exit a life of blindness to his new life with 20/20 vision. A heartfelt story of charity and compassion for a man who could not afford the treatment that changed his life. It is available to view on Dr. Stewart's website.

The documentary was centered around a Houstonian who was sent to Dr. Stewart by his local optometrist, with the diagnosis of advanced bilateral cataracts.

Unfortunately, he did not have insurance or the means to pay for cataract surgery, it was at this point his local optometrist called Dr. Stewart and the Houston Eye Foundation.

After the initial phone call, an appointment was made to see Dr. Stewart the next day. With the help of the Houston Eye Foundation, (initially founded by Dr. Colby Stewart's father the late Dr. Robert Stewart) and president of the Houston Eye Foundation Dr. Mark Vital, Dr. Stewart was able to donate his surgical expertise and help with cataract surgery. The documentary chronicles the initial examination, the surgical procedure, as well as interviews from the patient and some of the key players involved with the Houston Eye Foundation.

"It was very unusual to see cataracts this bad in a young man, especially in someone that is otherwise very active and healthy," said Dr. Stewart. "There are many things that we do not have treatment for in ophthalmology, but cataract
