Children express wish to see mother after eye surgery


Chronicle Reporter, Bhopal Cataract surgeries of two visually impaired brothers Vijay, 14, and Aman, 10 years, have been successfully performed in Sewa Sadan hospital here the other day. After surgery and removal of bandage from their eyes the glow of their faces was worth experiencing. Elder son Vijay said that on arriving to his village first of all he would like to see his mother. Father Gopalsingh told that due to lack of vision of his both sons, children were not able to perform their studies in the school. Their mother never left them alone. They were even fully dependent on their mother for their routine works also. After successful surgeries and getting vision in their eyes, children said that they will come here again for the surgeries of their other eye too. Gopal Singh of village Goriyakheda of Vidisha tehsil is a farm labourer and earns very meager. He is father of two daughters and two sons. Both his sons were ailing with cataract since birth, so they were not able to see anything. With the co-operation of International NGOs Sightsavers and Orbis, Sewa Sadan eye hospital have undertaken school screening programme in Bhopal, Raisen and Vidisha districts. Blindness of these children was identified during the school screening. Later, children were brought to district hospital Vidisha for their eye examination. Observing the miserable condition of these children, chief medical and health officer Vidisha sanctioned them part financial assistance under Rashtriya Baal Swasthya Karyakram. In view of their very young age, Sewa Sadan Eye Hospital implanted lenses of superior quality in the eyes of both the children at the hospital cost.
