Donaldson collaborated with ophthalmologist and surgeon Jeff Levenson to perform the initial round of treatments in Jacksonville, Florida.


For over 20 years, Levenson has coordinated the “Gift of Sight” program, which provides free cataract surgery to uninsured patients who are legally blind due to cataracts.


“If MrBeast can light a fire, and if we can get governmental and private support behind it, we can end half of all the blindness in the world,”


MrBeast showed the patients’ reactions as their bandages were removed after surgery.


This is first time that many of them had seen properly in decades.


MrBeast also gave $10,000 to several patients, purchased a Tesla for one, and donated $50,000 to another’s college fund.


In America Phacoemulsification, the surgery to remove cataracts, can cost up to $6,000 for patients without insurance.
