Six months back, a mundane household chore left Ankita Jain, 18, of Pathria village in Madhya Pradesh, badly injured in her left eye with a wooden stick she had used. With her vision blurred completely, she consulted several doctors in Sagar but in vain.
A doctor in Jabalpur, who was trained at LVPEI, recommended the institute so they promptly reached Hyderabad on 8 August 2015 where Dr Raja Narayanan successfully operated her for retinal detachment.
“I am a farmer and can ill afford expensive treatment. Dr Raja Narayanan assured me that my daughter would be treated completely free of cost, and she was. The operation has been successful and now my daughter is able to see from her left eye. I am hopeful that she will complete her studies and secure a good job for herself,” says the grateful father.
