On Wednesday, a team of eye doctors will perform free surgeries to restore vision of people suffering with cataracts.

It's free to uninsured patients at Sarasota-based Center for Sight.

If you can't make it, the service will be available again on August 7, but you must first apply online and meet the requirements.

Applicants must be United States citizens, have a confirmed diagnosis of cataracts, live at or below the poverty level set by the United States Department of Health and Human Services, and be without medicare, medicaid, or third-party insurance coverage.

You can apply for the program here.
