Born in New York in 1942, Patricia Bath is the first African American female doctor to receive a medical patent. She invented the Laserphaco Probe for the treatment of cataracts in 1986. With this amazing book, The Doctor with an Eye for Eyes, we had a great time learning about eyes and the amazing Patricia Bath.
This awesome book is a great story about the life of Patricia Bath. It is easy to read with great rhymes and fun illustrations. Early in her life, Patricia feels she can do anything that boys can do and with the encouragement from her family, she does. After receiving a chemistry set as a gift, she quickly discovers her passion in this area, she focuses on becoming a doctor to help the poor and sick. After discovering that blind black patients outnumbered white blind patients, she goes on a quest, researching and learning about lasers which ultimately leads her to invent the Laserphaco Probe. Even though she is met with many challenges along the way, her determination and focus is a great example for all kids to follow. To go alongside this book, I have created some timeline cards.
