Series: People Who Shaped Our World

The inspiring story of Dr. Patricia Bath, a groundbreaking ophthalmologist who pioneered laser surgery — and gave her patients the gift of sight.
Born in the 1940s, Patricia Bath dreamed of being an ophthalmologist at a time when becoming a doctor wasn't a career option for most women — especially African-American women. This empowering illustrated biography follows Dr. Bath in her quest to save and restore sight to the visually impaired, and her decision to "choose miracles" when everyone else had given up hope. Along the way, she cofounded the American Institute for the Prevention of Blindness, invented a specialised laser for removing cataracts, and became the first African-American woman doctor to receive a medical patent.
