Saraswati, 68, approached LVPEI's Arjun Waney Eye Centre at Berhampur, Odisha, complaining of diminished vision since 10 years. She suffered from diabetes and hypertension. After examination, she was diagnosed as having OD Pthisis bulbi and OS Primary open angle glaucoma. Effectively, she was one eyed and unable to even walk independently. She relied on her husband who himself was a patient and 7 years older.
Dr Aparna Rao suggested cataract and glaucoma surgeries to restore vision. Accordingly, Saraswati underwent SICS with IOL implantation and trabeculectomy on 6th April.
A week after surgery, she is delighted she can walk independently and even read with a little effort. She and her family sincerely thank Dr Aparna Rao and the team, and wish the institute many more successes in the years to come.
