Accessible, affordable eye care at the doorsteps of the community
Mahbub Ali Syed, 56, from Chunchupalli village in Khammam District, Telangana, had lost vision in his right eye 15 years back due to a stone injury. Since the past year, he was experiencing blurred vision in his other eye. A local doctor advised cataract surgery but fearing surgery and the huge expense, he bravely decided to live with blurred vision, even though mundane chores were getting increasingly challenging.
Things changed when an LVPEI field worker on a door-to-door survey visited Mahbub’s village, and soon escorted him to the Nava Bharat Eye Centre in Paloncha for a successful cataract surgery with Dr Priya Mittal, completely free of cost.
"I am so happy that I can once again see and take care of my family now!" says Mahbub.`
