For the 18th consecutive year, Kaiser Permanente physicians and staff in Sacramento will offer screenings for area residents who may be eligible for free cataract surgeries that will be performed this spring.

The screenings will be on Saturday April 13 at the Kaiser Permanente Point West Medical Offices, 1650 Response Road, Sacramento.

The surgeries are part of Mission Cataract USA, an annual program in which participating doctors provide the sight-restoring procedure to hundreds of people across the nation who have no health insurance and can’t afford the operation. Kaiser Permanente physicians and staff will perform as many as 20 free cataract surgeries on eligible individuals in early May.

Screening appointments can be made through April 5 or until the slots fill up, whichever comes first. To sign up for the screening, or to request more information, call: (916) 973-7159.
