MrBeast Helps 1,000 People Recover From Their Blindness In His Latest Video
The person with the most subscribers on YouTube just paid for simple eye surgery for 1,000 people, curing them of their blindness. Yes, MrBeast helps 1,000 people recover from their blindness in his latest video.
Mr. Beast helps 1,000 people recover from their blindness in his latest video. Jimmy Donaldson, 24, who goes by the internet alias MrBeast, published a video showing the dozens of US and international patients whose severe cataracts he has removed with the aid of the nonprofit organization See.
Additionally, Mr. Beast purchased a Tesla for one patient, provided $10,000 to several others, and even contributed $50,000 to another patient's college fund. He also gave See $100,000.
Donaldson is well-known for his bizarre stunt videos, which include one in which he is buried alive for 50 hours and another in which the owner of the last person removes their hand from a private jet. He is not only the user with the most subscribers on YouTube but also one of the top earners there.
"They can't see but we have all the technology to fix this,"he said in the video. The doctor's response was, "Half of all the blindness in the world is people who need a 10-minute surgery."
The charitable YouTuber continued by detailing in detail what happens during the quick yet profound surgery.
If you're wondering how the surgery allows people to see again, it's because the lens in their eyes is so cloudy that they can't see through it. So the surgeon uses a tiny vacuum to suck up the clouded lens. And replace it with an artificial one. The surgery is that simple! They can see again.- MrBeast
One of the recipients of the YouTuber's compassion looked down at his wrist to see his watch and explained that he'd never been able to see it before. This led to some pretty amazing sights as people had their sight returned in the video.
In the video, MrBeast shows how patients react when their bandages are removed after surgery. Many of them had not seen clearly in years when they experienced this.
One patient was a man by the name of Charlie, whose failing vision made it impossible for him to continue working. Charlie is given $10,000 by Mr. Beast after the surgery, which restores his vision.
"I can actually see your face," a patient says MrBeast in the video, "I just haven't been me for the last 62 years."
Another father claimed that his kid, who he described as being his "rock" throughout his visual troubles, was the first person he wanted to see when his bandages came off.
He continued, 'Seeing him, seeing his face, you know, that's what I miss the most.' His son was waiting for him as he emerged from surgery, and the two of them sobbed together.
He wiped away his tear and remarked, 'I can see everybody's facial features now, it's a little blurry with my tears coming out.'
One of Sees' specialties, phacoemulsification surgery, seems to be the one employed in the video. A new artificial lens is then inserted after a small incision is made in the eye to suck out the eye's clouded cataract lens.
Even though those who have severe cataracts may still see light, they are not completely blind. But their vision might be so blurry that they can't tell even the most basic shapes of things apart. Patients without insurance may have to pay up to $6,000 for phacoemulsification.
A kid named Jeremiah, who has been legally blind in his right eye since birth, is another one of MrBeast's patients. According to MrBeast in the video, the cataract he was born with meant the surgery had only a 50% chance of being successful because the eye could never see light.

After discovering that the surgery had been successful and removing his bandages, Jeremiah sobbed bitterly. Mr. Beast then gave him a check for $50,000 to use toward his college expenses.
He said, 'I don't even think this is real, like I'm waiting to wake up.' A person named Satchel who was born partially blind and nearly lost all of his vision in a go-kart accident was also featured in Mr. Beast.
Satchel said,'All I see is like blur and color, I can barely see the shapes.' He said to MrBeast that he had never been able to drive due to his visual issues and that as a result, he frequently found himself stranded at home.
Another man remarked, "I can see everybody's faces now,"before he joked, "[They're] a little blurry with my tears coming out."
As you can expect, the video received a lot of attention on the social networking site, and even though it was only posted 1 day ago, it has already received a whopping 43 million views.
In response to the popular video, one fan wrote:"FunnyHow Jimmy Is better than 99% politicians out there [sic],"praising MrBeast, who has the highest number of followers on YouTube.
"He went from giving people stuff and crazy challenges to changing people's lives for the better. This is amazing,"said another.
A third person said, "I myself have very bad eyesight and I really understand the people you helped.". "What an incredible person you are Jimmy, you deserve all this success,"wrote a fourth. A fifth added, "Hope you do more of these things for the world. Much appreciated!"
Mr. Beast and Mr. See also helped people from Namibia, Mexico, Honduras, Indonesia, Brazil, Vietnam, Kenya, and Jamaica get their sight back by operating on them in places like Brazil, Vietnam, Kenya, and Jamaica.
According to See, around 65.2 million people worldwide have cataracts, and in 80% of those cases, vision loss can be mild to severe.
Even though simple treatments for cataracts, such as the one described by MrBeast, are available, 99 percent of the world's population lacks access to healthcare and resources to address the problem.
Yes, it is possible. Many research teams are looking into how stem cells could be used to treat blindness. One of the most promising ways to do this is to focus on a part of the eye called the "retinal pigment epithelium" (RPE).
Yes, cataracts will eventually result in complete blindness if neglected.
Yes, blinds can see again thanks to scientific advancement.
MrBeast helps 1,000 people recover from their blindness in his latest video. The most recent stunt by the content producer was paying for 1,000 people who were blind or nearly blind but could not afford the operation to get their cataracts removed.
The video includes heartwarming before-and-after shots of patients seeing clearly following the operation. The YouTuber also handed some of the participants financial donations and other goodies.
In Jacksonville, Florida, Donaldson collaborated with ophthalmologist and surgeon Jeff Levenson to carry out the initial series of operations. Levenson has managed the "Gift of Sight" program, which offers free cataract surgery to uninsured individuals who are rendered legally blind by cataracts, for more than 20 years.
