24-Year-Old YouTuber, Mr Beast, Pays To Cure The Sight Of 1,000 Blind People



The person with the most subscribers on YouTube recently cured 1,000 people of blindness by paying for simple eye surgery.

Jimmy Donaldson, 24, known online as MrBeast, has just released a video detailing the scores of people across the United States and around the world whose severe cataracts he has removed with the help of a non-profit eye care organization.

MrBeast also gave $10,000 to several patients, purchased a Tesla, and donated $50,000 to someone else’s college fund. He also gave See $100,000.

Donaldson is known for his bizarre stunt videos, such as one in which he is buried alive for 50 hours and another in which the last person to remove their hand from a private jet wins the plane. Not only is he the most-subscribed person on YouTube, but he’s also one of the highest-paid.

Jimmy Donaldson, 24, known online as MrBeast, presents a $10,000 check to a patient following surgery.

The second person for whom MrBeast performed surgery. He assisted in the healing of 998 others.

MrBeast shows patients having their bandages removed after surgery and their reactions in the video. It was the first time many of them had seen properly in decades.

One patient, Charlie, was unable to continue working due to vision problems. Charlie can see again after the surgery, and MrBeast gives him $10,000.

“I just haven’t been me for the last 62 years,” says one patient in the video to MrBeast, “I can actually see your face.”

Another man said the first thing he wanted to see when his bandages were removed was his son, who he says was his “rock” during his vision problems.

“Seeing him, seeing his face, you know, that’s what I miss the most,” he said.

As soon as he came out of the operation, his son was there and the two hugged in tears.

“I can see all the features now,” he said, wiping away a tear. “It’s a little blurry when my tears come out.”

After the cataract has been removed from the eye, an artificial lens is implanted to replace it.

Sees specializes in a procedure known as phacoemulsification.

The doctor makes a small incision in the eye and suctions out the clouded cataract lens before inserting a new artificial lens.

People with severe cataracts aren’t completely blind; they can see light, but their vision is so blurry that the basic shapes of objects can’t be discerned.

Patients without insurance may have to pay up to $6,000 for phacoemulsification.

Jeremiah received $50,000 for his college education after his surgery



After a successful operation, MrBeast presented Satchel with a brand new Tesla

Another patient of MrBeasts is a boy named Jeremiah who has been blind in his right eye since birth. The cataracts he was born with prevented the eye from ever seeing light, meaning the surgery was only 50 percent successful, MrBeast explained in the video.

Jeremiah broke down in tears after removing his bandages and finding the surgery worked, and then MrBeast presented him with a check for $50,000 to put towards his tuition.

“I don’t even think that’s real, like I’m waiting to wake up,” he said.

MrBeast also featured a teenager named Satchel who was partially blind from birth and lost almost all of his sight in a go-kart accident.

“Everything I see is like blur and color, I can barely make out the shapes,” Satchel explained.

He told MrBeast that he could never drive because of his eyesight and that’s why he was stuck at home.

At the end of the video, after the surgery was successful, MrBeast gave Jeremiah a Tesla.

The countries visited were Namibia, Mexico, Honduras, Indonesia, Brazil, Vietnam, Kenya and Jamaica

MrBeast and See also took their surgery around the world to heal the sight of people from Namibia, Mexico, Honduras, Indonesia, Brazil, Vietnam, Kenya and Jamaica.

On his website, See explained that cataracts affect about 65.2 million people around the world and that in 80 percent of those cases, the vision loss can be moderate to severe.

Procedures for curing cataracts like the one described by MrBeast are relatively simple, but 99 percent of the world does not have access to medical care and services to treat the condition.
