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 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.
