Robert H. Osher

Today we honor Dr. Robert H. Osher for his innovations in cataract removal. Two weeks ago, Dr. Osher performed cataract surgery on my mother. He broke up the cataract, replaced her lens and now she has 20/20 vision. Oh, and I forgot to mention that the surgery was done in ten minutes and she could see perfectly that same day. Osher invented the lenses and the method that is now performed on thousands of people all over the world.

Dr. Osher's method involves taking the time to customize lenses to replace the lens after breaking up the cataract. This means that patients' organic lenses are replaced with specialized synthetic lenses that are perfectly chosen to give them clearer vision. Then, the surgery itself is performed after a patient's eyes are temporarily paralyzed. All and all, the patient is only knocked out for about 5 minutes while the eye is paralyzed.

Dr. Osher's pursuit of personal wealth and recognition has led to great amounts of wealth. Not only are people seeing better, but the recovery time from cataract surgery has been greatly reduced.
