Restore Eye Sights To 500 Bangladeshis.



Update April 11, 2011. Following the Eye Camp on February 20, 2011, 29 cataract patients were selected for surgery. Operations were performed on these patients on February 23, 2011 at our hospital. All patients were doing fine after operation and the happy people went home to their near & dear ones. M Abdus Sobhan Project Leader

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

The incidences of blindness due to cataract are wide spread in Gaibandha district in Bangladesh, where people are very poor. 500 cataract patients from 10 villages will be selected in camps. Selection process and operations have already begun. Patients are selected in camps in villages. Selected patients are brought to our hospital and operated. 40 cataract operations have already been made.

How will this project solve this problem?

500 patients will be selected from 10 villages. The process has already started in December, 2009.

Potential Long Term Impact

The impact is immense. The people who got back their eye sights following surgery become productive immediately to their families and the society, besides the psychological impact on their kids and wives whom they saw after few years of blindness.
