We are happy to share the impactful story of Mr Arjunsinh.
Mr Arjun 68 years old, from Rajasthan, came to Cornea OPD at the Blind People's Association-managed Porecha Eye Hospital with a complaint of no vision in his right eye. His right eye vision was PL+ PR accurate in all quadrants. The left eye was 6/18. During the examination, it was discovered that the right eye had adherent leucoma and the left eye had an immature cataract. On detailed history, the patient confirmed that he had cataract surgery in his right eye 5 years ago in another hospital and that he had a history of trauma in the same eye that resulted in vision loss.
The patient was unaware of procedures such as cornea transplantation, which could help him regain his vision. After a thorough examination, counselling, and consideration of various treatment options, the patient was ready for Right Eye Optical Penetrating Keratoplasty. The surgery was successful, and the patient is very pleased with the outcome, as he is no longer reliant on others for his day-to-day activities.
Now, the hospital has planned to set up a new eye hospital at Bayad in Aravali district, Gujarat. This district adjoins the border of Rajasthan and Madhyapradesh. The upcoming multispecialty eye hospital will provide the best quality eye care treatment to poor tribal people without any charges. The construction work of the new hospital has already begun and expecting that the hospital will start functioning from April 2023.
We request you to visit the Blind People's Association, Porecha Eye Hospital at Bareja whenever you will be in India. We request you kindly share this project's activities among your friends, and family members, and motivate them to be part of this project.

Due to covid 19 pandamic the eye camps were not organized, and also due to her poor financial conditons, she was not able to visit the hospital for treatment. When she was contacted by the field staff during the eye camp campaigning, she was so happy to get informed about the camp. She travelled 80 kms to attend eye camp. Doctor diagnosed her with matured cataract with immediate surgery. She was told that if she had waited for one month more she would have lost her eye sight due to mature cataract.
