At 8 months, Sharath's parents noticed a white layer covering both his eyes. They also suspected he was unable to see. A local doctor in their native Kurnool district recommended LVPEI. “We took a sigh of relief when Dr Ramesh Kekunnaya informed us that other than congenital cataract, our child had no other problem,” says Vijay Kandol, the father. Under the skilful hands of Dr Kekunnaya, Sharath underwent cataract surgeries in both his eyes, completely free of cost.
The greatest joy for his mother is that Sharath can now recognize his parents. They are grateful to LVPEI and Dr Kekunnaya for restoring their child's vision and saving him from living his life in darkness.
