Campbellton-Dalhousie MLA says cataracte surgery returning to Campbellton Regional Hospital in March

Seniors in the Restigouche Region will no longer have to make the trip to Bathurst for cataract surgery.

Campbellton-Dalhousie MLA Guy Arseneault tells the Tribune the surgery will, once again, be offered at Campbellton Regional Hospital beginning in March.

Arseneault says his constituents have been asking to see the procedure reinstated.

He expects around 32 of the surgeries will be performed each month, with a goal of increasing that to 64.
