Words are inadequate to describe how elated I am at the gift of sight given back to me by the extraordinary team at Eye Doctors of Washington, specifically my surgeon, Dr. Thomas Clinch. Some background: At least 10 years ago, I was diagnosed with early cataracts in my mid-50s by my ophthalmologist in Virginia. Annually, this eye doctor adjusted my glasses prescription and told me my cataracts weren’t ready for surgery. As the years progressed, insidiously I lost the ability to discern colors
