Bobbili Sanyasirao was working in a small hotel in Chodavarm village, Visakhapatnam, Andha Pradesh on daily wages. One day he accidentally hurt his eyes and it resulted in severe redness and swelling. The local chemist prescribed some eye drops. Rather than doing any good, the drops aggravated the problem. His vision reduced and his cornea started turning white. He underwent a surgery performed by a local ophthalmologist, but the results were not positive. In 2015, he experienced vision loss in his left eye as well. He was then advised to visit LVPEI’s GMRV Campus in Visakhapatnam. A corneal transplantation surgery was performed by Dr Merle Fernandes. “I will be forever indebted to LVPEI for giving me back my vision and my financial independence. My vision has improved drastically and I have now started my own flower shop” says Bobbili.
