The ophthalmologist from Fort Collins will be a welcomed addition to the existing vision care offered at MMH, as cataract surgery will now be available to people in and around Holyoke.
Presently, Smith is scheduled to be at the MMH specialty clinic monthly, but additional dates may be added, should the demand necessitate it.
