Ameena developed some troubles in her eyes about three years ago. But could not afford to see an eye specialist.

She was found to have developed cataract in both of her eyes. Ameena, along with other cataract patients, was brought to Karmirhath Hospital for treatment. After thorough examinations and tests, cataract operations were conducted on both eyes of Ameena, free of costs.
