We treat all of our patients like family. However, this person actually is family to Dr. Benaim. Dr. Benaim’s mother, Rivian Benaim, showed early signs of cataracts. He told her that he would help her watch it as she grew older. She eventually did need surgery, which she said went beautifully. She went from relying on glasses to not needing any glasses at all. “Two days later, I went to the movies. I watched the Oscar Awards — all on television. I could see perfectly within two, three days.”
