Giving Sight to the Cataract Blind

by Fatima Memorial Hospital
Vetted

In this world torn by war, terror, hunger and destruction to see that there are so many people who are out there to help and support us in not only heartening but also gives us hope all is not lost.

We had asked your support in raising funds for the gift of sight and we got so much in return and with this we helped so many. You are the reason for the light in so many lives from young children to women to old men. We treated them all through the trust and support you have shown us and we thank you for it and we will keep continuing it.

This Department was established in year 2000 and is now equipped with state of the art ophthalmic diagnostic and therapeutic equipment like operating microscopes, Phaco-emulsification and micro incision procedures are performed as a routine in the department of ophthalmology. 

We will like to continue our program and hopefully we can with your support 

Thank you once again!

This platform has helped us raised funds for patients across Punjab who get the gift of sight. There are so many who have benefitted from the generous donations. Last year alone the Ophthalmology department of Fatima Memorial Hospital treated 11,900 patients.

The lives we have touched and the prayers we have received are only because of this. To see Samina to start learning to sew and so she can support her family makes us proud as this procedure has not helped her with the gift of sight but will also be responsible for her to be financially independent and support her family. 

The stories will keep coming if you keep supporting.

We will like to continue our program and hopefully we can with your support 

Thank you once again!

Let there be light
Let there be light

We at Fatima Memorial Hospital feel blessed as we have almost achieved the target goal we had set out to achieve only because of the generous donations of supporters who have brought us where we are today.

You are the reason; we have been able to make our dreams a reality.

The hospital has been treating Cataract patients regularly and through the support of countless donors from across the world we have been able to give light to those who thought there was only darkness in their lives.

The lives we have touched and the prayers we have received are only because of this. To see young Imran now able to read after his procedure is only one such small example.

The stories will keep coming if you keep supporting.

We will like to continue our programa and hopefully we can with your support

Lets add color to life
Lets add color to life

In today’s day and age we have forgotten to be thankful for the gifts we have been given: The gift of sight, the gift of hearing which gives us the ability to enjoy what life has to offer to the fullest.

We waste our time in getting upset about what we do not have: the new car, the new bag, the latest designer collection but we are never thankful for what we have.

There are countless among us who can’t see and what makes it even worse is the realization that lack of financial resources is the reason why so many can’t see.

Cataract is a progressive, painless clouding of the natural, internal lens of the eye. Cataracts block light, making it difficult to see clearly. Over an extended period of time, cataracts can cause blindness. However a small surgical procedure can rectify the issue enabling so many to lead a better life.

Ali, one of the child who had went through surgery was not even able to see beyond 2 feet is now able to lead a normal life and perform better at school. 

The concept of camps has now moved to become a permnant feature at Fatima Memorial Hospital and everyday through Monday to Saturday the Eye department operates providing consultations and surgeries to deserving patients. 

We at Fatima Memorial Hospital hold regular camps to provide free surgeries for Cataract. With the support of philanthropists and donors we have been able to treat so many and given them the opportunity to see the colours of life. We can keep providing free treatment continuously with your support.

 

Support us today and bring back the beauty of the world for those who can’t see.   

Cataract is a progressive, painless clouding of the natural, internal lens of the eye. Cataracts block light, making it difficult to see clearly. Over an extended period of time, cataracts can cause blindness. Mostly this disease is related to older people but it can also develop in younger people.

When the protein level increases cataract occurs and makes the vision cloudy. Risk factors for age related cataract include diabetes, prolonged exposure to sunlight, tobacco use and alcohol drinking. Vision can be restored by surgically removing the affected lens, and replacing it by an artificial one.

There are many patients of cataract worldwide and this disease is increasing day by day. This disease is sorted by surgical procedure.

We at Fatima Memorial Hospital hold regular camps to provide free surgeries for Cataract. With the support of philanthropists and donors we have been able to treat so many and given them the opportunity to see the colour of life. We can keep providing free treatment continuously with your support.

Support us today and bring back the beauty of the world for those who can’t see.
