The Honorable Mr Henry Muganwa Kajura, Deputy Prime Minster of Uganda flew into Hyderabad on March 22, 2011, hoping that his eye problems would be solved at LVPEI along with his physician Dr Tendo Nsereko. Henry Kajura has served in the government since 1989, the last 10 years as Deputy Prime Minister.
Mr Kajura had a macular hole in the retina in the right eye. He was seen in the clinic by our retinal specialists and scheduled for a vitreo-retinal surgery in an attempt to close the macular hole. The operation was successful!
Mr Kajura came to LVPEI a few months later for the removal of the silicone oil. Post-surgery, a fundus examination showed his attached retina with the hole in the right eye closed. He commented, “I am very satisfied with the treatment and the professional way I was taken care of at LVPEI.” In a meeting with Dr Gullapalli N Rao, Chair, LVPEI, he expressed a wish to set up a similar institute in Uganda. We at LVPEI pride ourselves in our ability to not only provide successful treatment, but also inspire people for similar vision as well.
