NASHVILLE, Tenn. - His signature cowboy hat and dark sunglasses do more than make Charlie Daniels look cool, they protect his eyes.
For years the Mt. Juliet native and country music legend has been losing his eyesight to cataracts.
This week he was among the first group of patients in Tennessee to undergo a revolutionary new procedure called Smart Eye Surgery to have his sight restored.
"I'm going to get started out here and be able to see without glasses for the first time in 68 years," the 75-year-old Daniels told Nashville's News 2.
Renowned Nashville eye surgeon Dr. Ming Wang is the first cataract surgeon in the state to introduce Smart Eye Surgery.
Instead of waiting weeks, the new technique allows surgeons to customize treatment as needed, immediately after the cataract has been removed.
"We can actually do mid-flight adjustment on the operating table, before surgery is finished, to test drive to see how well, this particular patient's body, in this case Mr. Charlie Daniels, is reacting to the lens implanted," Dr. Wang explained.
Smart Eye technology lets Dr. Wang analyze Daniels vision and make precise adjustments during the procedure, giving him a faster recovery time.
Daniels had surgery on his left eye two days ago and on his right eye Thursday morning.
"I'm just looking forward to not having to reach up and pat around the table for glasses when I get up in the morning to see where I'm going," he said.
"With the revolutionary ORA System, a cataract surgeon can now, for the first time, individualize and customize the treatment based on the state of the patient's eye once the cataract has been removed," added Dr. Wang.
