An Eye saved
Mukesh, a farmer led a happy life with his 2 children and wife. They were not rich but managed in what they had. His children went to a local school. He hurt his eye while harvesting his crop. He did not pay much attention to the pain thinking it would get ok. The eye started festering & became extremely painful. His work was affected which affected the household income.
He came to the peripheral rural camp site run by ICARE where he was immediately advised to seek specialized care. He was brought back to ICARE hospital where the corneal ophthalmologist examined him and advised immediate surgery if his eye was to be saved. The operation was carried out and a therapeutic PK Penetrating Keratoplasty (cornea replacement) was done. It was thought that the vision restoration surgery could take place after a few months when the eye had settled down. The second operation too was carried out and soon Mukesh could see well enough to carry out his work.
Being the only earning member, sitting at home after developing the painful eye condition was not bearable for Mukesh. Post surgery he could get back to his work. While it took a little time for things to get back into shape, gradually life started looking up and falling back into the same comfortable mould as before.
