On Friday March 23 and March 30, Center For Sight used its state-of-the-art Sarasota surgical center to perform dozens of free cataract surgeries for people who have no insurance and no means to pay. The surgeries were performed as part of Mission Cataract USA, a nationwide project involving eye surgeons throughout the United States. Most patients were from Sarasota, Manatee, Charlotte, Pinellas and Hillsborough counties, with a few traveling from as far away as Alabama and Georgia.

LECOM/SCF Pharmacy Program
The Lake Erie College of Osteopathic Medicine (LECOM) School of Pharmacy and the State College of Florida (SCF) have partnered to facilitate the admission of SCF graduates into the LECOM Doctor of Pharmacy program.
The early acceptance program calls for LECOM to reserve five slots for SCF students who complete an undergraduate (associate) degree, including or in addition to required higher-level math and science courses.
The program is open to current SCF students as well as current high school students enrolling at SCF.
While a dedicated student who enrolls at SCF with specific math and science courses already completed could graduate in two years with the 60-hour Associate in Arts degree, most students are expected to opt for a “three-plus-four” year track—three years at SCF to accommodate additional math and science courses, plus four years at LECOM’s School of Pharmacy.
