  • Patricia Bath is an African-American ophthalmologist. In 1974, she became the first African American woman surgeon at the UCLA Medical Center. In 1977, she and three colleagues founded the American Institute for the Prevention of Blindness. On May 17, 1988, Bath received a patent for her invention, a laser instrument that tested the removal of cataracts called the Laserphaco Probe, and the new technique used for cataract surgery. The device restored the sight of thousands of patients worldwide. Bath’s contributions changed the field of ophthalmology.
