"A Christmas Miracle" Story Highlights Efforts of NYEE Surgical Team to Restore Brooklyn Woman's Vision

NY Daily News Christmas Miracle StoryNEW YORK, NY
December 18, 2009

Dear Friends and Colleagues,

You have heard me state how privileged I feel to serve The New York Eye and Ear Infirmary along with our exemplary medical staff.  This is especially so today as I draw your attention to the story that appears on the front page of this morning’s New York Daily News entitled “Gift of Sight.”

This “Christmas miracle” story cites a case of Dr. C. Michael Samson.  He, his fellow Dr. Vincente Diaz, and their surgical team recently restored the vision of a 36-year-old mother from Brooklyn who was blind due to uveitis.  She was subsequently able to see her daughters as pictured in the paper. 

This story is a wonderful way to end 2009, with a tribute to the incredible work performed here every day.  It is also as a reminder of the critical need to expand and update our capabilities through our 2010 Surgical Suite Initiative, so that we can continue this miraculous work. 

I wish you happy holidays and look forward to a great new year. 

-Mc Kessler
President and CEO
