HELP RESTORE EYESIGHTS TO 500 BANGLADESHIS PROJECT REPORT_May 24, 2013 The number of cataract patients are rising. This is in spite of the fact that the service providers for cataract operations in the country have increased considerably. Karmirhath hospital is trying to increase its capacity to handle an increased number of cataract patients. Case Study: 1.Purna Chandra Das: Purna Chandra Das, aged 60 years, is a very poor person. He had to sell his dwelling house in order to meet the demands for dowry for marriages of his two daughters. To make things worse for him, his doctor told him that he had developed cataract on both of his eyes and that he needed operations as soon as possible. Mr. Das who was almost a street beggar was unable to arrange fund for operations. He was trying hard to arrange funds for cataract operations on his eyes. In the mean time, when he was attending his doctor, he came to know that Karmirhath hospital not only give free treatments to poor patients, they perform cataract operations also free for them. So, Mr. Purna Chandra Das came to Karmirhath hospital last month and had his cataract removed from his right eye. A week later, his left eye was operated to remove cataract. Full eye sight has now been restored to Mr. Das. 2. Lal Bibi: Lal Bibi lives about 5 km from Karmirhath. She is 70, a widow having two sons. She lives with her elder son who is a van driver. She developed some trouble in her eyes. On examination at Karmirhath hospital, it was found that both of her eyes have developed Cataracts that need to be removed by surgery. Lal Bibi was admitted to the hospital. Cataract surgery were performed on both the eyes of Lal Bibi. She now moves around with normal eye sight.
