YouTube superstar, MrBeast, has made it possible for 1,000 people to see again. 

“In this video, we’re curing 1,000 people’s blindness,” said MrBeast in his latest YouTube video. “It’s gonna be crazy.”

In the video, MrBeast shared incredibly touching before-and-after footages of patients seeing with clear vision finishing the surgery. Many of these patients have been blind since birth. 

MrBeast even gave two of these patients huge cash donations.

“You know what, here’s $10,000 to make your day even better,” MrBeast said to one of the patients while holding a briefcase filled with cash.

His generosity doesn’t stop there.

A patient named Satchel had poor vision from birth and almost lost his entire vision after a go-karting accident. 

“Blindness can take away parts of your life. He mentioned multiple times he really wants to drive after this procedure fixes his eyesight. So I’ll see you at the end of the video when we surprise him with a brand new Tesla,” announced MrBeast mid-video.

MrBeast also gifted Jeremiah, a soon-to-be college student, with $50,000 to put towards his college funds.

In Jacksonville, Florida, MrBeast collaborated with ophthalmologist and surgeon Jeff Levenson to carry out the initial series of operations. 

Levenson has managed the “Gift of Sight” programme, which offers free cataract surgery to uninsured individuals who are rendered legally blind by cataracts, for more than 20 years. Mr Beast donated $100,000 to the “Gift of Sight” programme.

“Half of all blindness in the world is people who need a 10-minute surgery,” said Levenson in the video, referring to the cataract removal surgery.

MrBeast even sponsored cataract surgeries to patients in Brazil, Jamaica, Honduras, Namibia, Mexico, Indonesia, Kenya, and Vietnam. 

Known for his family-friendly, whacky content, the 24-year-old American, whose real name is Jimmy Donaldson, beat PewDiePie to become the world’s most-followed individual on YouTube with over 130 million subscribers and $500 million in revenue.
