On this weekend’s exciting new episode of Sea Rescue, “Seeing is Believing,” Iris, a stranded harbor seal pup, is found to have cataracts in both eyes and undergoes groundbreaking surgery to restore her sight. And rescuers race against time and a rising tide to free a humpback whale whose tail is anchored to the seabed.
UPDATE: When this episode of Sea Rescue was filmed, it was not yet determined if cataracts surgery worked. Since then, Iris has regained sight meaning the surgery was indeed a success! SeaWorld San Diego's Rescue Team released her just last week on November 21.
