Patricia's Vision: The Doctor Who Saved Sight
by Michelle Lord Author and Alleanna Harris Illustrator
Dr. Patricia Bath was an ophthalmologist who pioneered laser surgery for removing cataracts. She was the first African-American woman doctor to receive a medical patent—five are attributed to her. This beautifully illustrated book is a fitting tribute to a remarkable human being and her life's work, sure to inspire generations of girls and young women to dream big and aspire to follow career paths that suit their passions rather than the crumbling societal norms of racism and patriarchy.
