Rand Paul’s Pro Bono Eye Surgeries

by Katrina Trinko

Paducah, Ky. — Rand Paul switched gears today, swapping politics for medicine, and doing pro bono eye surgery on four people. I’ll have more details in a later piece, but I wanted to share some of the pictures of Dr. Paul operating today (he and two of his patients were kind enough to let me watch the surgeries).
