Senator Rand Paul has spent much of the August recess engaged in typical political activities—attending a roundtable on school reform, participating in a fundraiser for a fellow Republican, and speaking at a local ham breakfast . But Paul also set aside some time for one more unusual activity: Helping some people to see. Paul, an ophthalmologist, performed several eye surgeries. All of them were for patients who don't have insurance. And he donated his services for free.

Of course, as Trinko’s story makes clear, Paul would have you believe that his good deeds—and his experience as a physician—justify his positions on health care policy. That’s another matter entirely. Paul is a well-known critic of government-run and government-regulated health care programs, starting with the Affordable Care Act. The opposition is in many ways philosophical: Nobody has a “right” to health care, he says, because that would mean people have a right to commandeer the labor of those who provide care. Trinko, in her article, quotes Paul explaining this position during a speaking event:

“As humans, yeah, we do have an obligation to give people water, to give people food, to give people health care,” Paul muses. “But it's not a right because once you conscript people and say, ‘Oh, it's a right,’ then really you're in charge, it's servitude, you're in charge of me and I'm supposed to do whatever you tell me to do. . It really shouldn't be seen that way.”

It is estimated that 37 million people worldwide are blind. In 18 million of these cases, their blindness is related to cataracts.

A cataract is a clouding of the lens inside the eye which leads to a decrease in vision. There are a number of causes, age being the most common. Genetics and trauma can also lead to cataracts.

We have targeted the Asia-Pacific region due to the fact that over half of those suffering with avoidable blindness are found here.
