 Ajay -5 year old, getting treatment for Retinoblastoma of the eye at SCEH
Ajay, a 5 year old boy, the only son of his parents, belongs to a poor family of a farmer. Some months back his left eye started paining and there was sudden drop of vision. The parents took him to local Ayurvedic doctors who gave him medicines, and when his situation became bad, and the Retinoblastoma covered his whole eye and became very much visible, they brought him to SCEH. Ajay was given 6 cycles of chemotherapy to arrest the spread of malignancy before he could be operated. Each cycle was administered at the gap of 1 month, after testing his blood count etc. As the cancer of his eye was in a very advanced stage, in the next phase his eye had to be removed surgically. After this radiotherapy treatment has been started; this will be administered in about 20 sessions, which aims to protect the malignancy from spreading and becoming life-threatening. Ajay became very comfortable after the surgery, as his pain had gone. He started playing and roaming about the hospital as he had to stay in the hospital for over a month. His radiotherapy is going on; he will be reviewed after the whole treatment and subsequently will come for a follow-up every 6 months.
 Deepna sees the World again!
Deepna was only 3 years old when she lost vision in both her eyes followed by high fever & infection in her eyes. Resident of Jila Kannauj, Madhya Pradesh, she belongs to a poor family having 4 siblings. Her father, the sole bread-earner works as casual labour at a local sweet shop. She was admitted to the Blind school and there she was living with no hope of any miracle in her life! SCEH team happened to visit the blind school, where they planned to examine the eyes of the blind children to assess whether some of them who were suffering from corneal blindness had some life in their optic nerve too. . In this way, SCEH Community Outreach team assessed that Deepna could benefit from Cornea Transplant surgery. After doing the necessary physical examinations and other investigations, a healthy cornea was procured (through Eye Bank) and finally she got a cornea transplant surgery by our Cornea Surgeon. After four days of her surgery, she looked a happier person, as she had started to see from one of her eyes. The doctors say that her vision will improve with more passage of time. This was a very big achievement for the doctors as Deepna could see the world once again; she no longer requires to languish in the blind school and with some help she can pursue her studies or learn some craft. With the help of her vision in one eye, at least she will not be a burden on others for her daily chores.She is now determined to fulfill her dream of becoming a teacher.
 Story of two sisters
Rajeev, an Auto rickshaw driver, lost his wife after the birth of two children, Kanchan & Priya. As he could not manage home & work he got married again and had 3 more children. Both Kanchan and Priya had congenital Cataract in both the eyes. They were teased by all the children and had severe problems in studies. Their step-mother was also not sympathetic towards them. Rajeev was miserable, as he could not afford to get the girls operated. The two sisters were also leading an unhappy life, with fast deteriorating vision. SCEH Community Outreach team arranged a free eye camp with the support of ORBIS International in Shakurpur, where both the sisters had been brought by their father. They were examined and referred to the base hospital for surgical intervention. Both have been operated for cataract of both the eyes; in total, 4 surgical interventions were made, totally free of charge to the family. They were brought to the hospital for follow-up examinations and are progressing satisfactorily. Their vision restored, they are much happier and look forward to attending school from the coming session. They are accepted by their peer group. Their step-mother also feels less burdened, and the whole family is relieved. Kanchan and Priya will now grow up like other normal children, as their improved vision has improved their self-confidence.
Ramu lived in rural Alwar, Rajasthan. This mans dream was modest - to be productive and happy in his old age. Taking the cattle out for grazing, playing with his grandchildren and safeguarding his sons crops used to be impossible, due to his visual impairment. Under SCEH Community Outreach Programme our team visited the camp in Alwar and screened Ramu, who had cataract in his left eye. He was then brought to the base hospital, his fitness tests were conducted, and on finding him fit for surgery, he was operated and the cataract removed. Next day, after doing a follow-up examination of the eye he was transported back to his village. Now, after his cataract surgery, he can do all those things he wanted to do, graze the cattle and play with his grandchildren; and once again live with dignity.
 From No Vision to Functional Vision
Balistar, a 12 years old boy from a small village called Hadobadhya, of District Goprakhpur, was absolutely normal before a tragedy struck him .Due to a fall and injury he suffered from total Retinal Detachment of both the eyes .His world became dark and he could hardly see. He was facing the danger of becoming totally blind for the rest of his life, if immediate surgery was not done. He was admitted to the hospital and the Retina specialists did all the pre-surgery tests and investigations. Once he was found fit, an emergency surgery date was fixed. Over a period of 6 months his better eye was operated upon 2 to 3 times. He was always kept in the hospital ward for couple of days under observation & follow-up. Today he has gained functional vision and can go about his daily activities. He is no more dependent on others for minor things, he can cross the road and manage to move about near his house on his own. The achievement in his case is that the doctors have been able to give him functional vision, which is much better than having NO Vision!
 Phaco surgery of Ramesh - a sole bread-earner of the family
Ramesh, 41 years old, the sole bread-earner of a family of 8 members, belongs to Bihar, and works as a labor in Bangalore. While working at a site he got injured in his right eye by a stone and developed a cataract. Within days he experienced dimness of vision and then total darkness. Now his vision had dropped down to counting fingers. He was totally heart-broken, as constant pain in the eyes and near blindness was keeping him away from work; his constant worry was, how would he support his family now? Considering his age and responsibilities in life, the doctors felt that he needed a phaco surgery, as it would give him good quality vision, and that too, without wasting much of his time. Therefore in January 2010, the doctors performed a phaco surgery of his right eye. As no sutures are needed in this surgery his visual rehabilitation was extremely fast and he could resume his everyday activities soon after. In the immediate and subsequent follow-ups, he reported that he was totally relieved of the pain and got excellent vision back. Now he just requires a few follow-ups and can return to his work. He is happy that despite of being so poor SCEH gave him such a good quality treatment totally free – he could not have asked for more!
 Tympanoplasty surgery of Sanha at SCEH
Sanha 17 yrs old girl was very upset when she came to our hospital with her ear problem She complained of profuse right ear discharge since 3 years. She was facing tremendous difficulties in her day-to-day activities due to her leaking ears, continuous pain and reduced hearing abilities. She has 3 siblings; her mother being the sole earner of the family, as her father died many years ago, was finding it hard to make the two ends meet. Therefore her problem was being neglected as they had no means to go to a doctor. One day someone in their neighborhood informed them about our hospital and they approached us for help. In October 2008, she underwent tympanoplasty surgery of the right ear; she stayed overnight at the hospital for 2 days, which included physical examination on one day, surgery on the next day and finally follow-up before she was discharged after change of bandage next day. When she came for a follow-up, she was a happy person, as her hearing had improved and the pain had gone. She has visited many times for her check-ups and is doing fine and attending a vocational training course.
