Heart surgeon with magnifying lenses on his glasses performing a coronary artery bypass operation. The lenses allow a clear view of an area, allowing precise surgical procedures to be carried out. This operation re-routes blood around a blockage in the arteries supplying the heart using a vein harvested from the patient's leg. Blocked coronary arteries can cause angina pectoris (heart pain) and a heart attack.
