The Gift of Sight, as reported on KHON
A freak accident left an eighth grader at Highland Intermediate blind in his left eye. The injury meant he couldn’t play any of the sports he loves.

KGMB 9 Interviews Dr. Olkowski
KGMB9 interviews Dr. Olkowski regarding cataract surgery and a new lens called Crystalens.
