Mr Atoyebi from Nigeria

Atoyebi Oluwabiyi Francis, 31, is from Basin Ilorin, Kwara, Nigeria. He is a graduate in geology, and a postgraduate in environmental management. Mr Atoyebi has been suffering from diabetes and hypertension. The vision in his left eye is very poor owing to diabetic retinopathy.
 
He had consulted doctors in his home country; the doctors at the University of Ilorin Teaching Hospital (UITH) had advised him to go to LVPEI in India. This patient had bleeding inside the eye along with retinal detachment. At LVPEI, the silicone oil was removed three weeks post surgery. Silicone oils have been used as a vitreous fluid substitute to treat difficult cases of retinal detachment.

After the operation, Mr Atoyebi, and his wife Mrs Omolola Justina Atoyebi, are jubilant that he is able to see clearly. He describes his experience at LVPEI as lovely and marvelous, and is especially grateful to his Dr Raja Narayanan. He says he is short of words, and does not know how to thank LVPEI enough.
