After an accident which left Yariberliz Torres’ eye severely damaged, there was little hope of saving her eye. But thanks to a coordinated effort between Dr. Akbar Hasan of Florida Eye Specialists, Dr. John Sullivan of South East Retina, and Wolfson Children’s Hospital, she was able to receive a pro bono surgery for her eye.
“Access to health care is always an issue and as doctors, we’re there for the community as well,” said Dr. Hasan.
First Coast News covered the story, which you can watch below. We are very proud of Dr. Hasan and are so grateful to have been able to be part of her recovery!
