71 year old Korrapati Swathanthra Bharathi Devi from Chodavaram village of Krishna district was afflicted by bone T.B. To make matters worse, both her eyes were afflicted with cataract, completely affecting her vision. She had difficulty even in carrying out her day-to-day activities.
Then she came to L V Prasad Eye Institute in Tadigadapa, Vijayawada. Here, Dr Pradeep Reddy provided two phases of treatment. The first surgery improved vision and the next surgery did the same in the other eye three months later. Though her body did not cooperate well to begin with, through the doctor’s help and counseling and the state-of-the-art facilities at the operating room, she could overcome the difficult situation. Post the operation, she is happy and relieved to have regained complete vision. She not only goes about her daily chores but is also able to read the newspaper with ease.
She says LVPEI has been a boon in bringing to the doorstep of the poor the benefits of advancement in science and technology. She also heaped praise and expressed her gratitude to Dr. Pradeep Reddy and counselor Malleswari who meticulously provided advise and counseling even on phone.
