When wishes came true for Labala Urmila.
60 year-old Labala Urmila had lost all her hopes along with her sight. A few years ago she had lost complete vision in her right eye due to glaucoma with diminishing vision in her left eye. Even for her routine tasks she had become dependent on her husband. This caused both mental and economical stress for her and her family. Initially, Urmila consulted many neighboring hospitals with the hope of correcting the vision in her left eye, however with every visit, all she found was another closed door.
But little did she know that her fate was to change with visit to VFI. She visited the VFI-conducted eye camp in Almanda village, Andhra Pradesh in October 2015 with her husband, where they were given detailed information on her current vision related situation. They were informed that a surgery can help correct her vision to a great extent and were advised to go for the same at the earliest. With the help of expert VFI doctors and staff team, a plan was made to operate on Urmila the next week. She was admitted for 3-4 days post her surgery for observation’s and was discharged with much clearer vision and a happy smile on her face.
Seeing people like Urmila go out of the hospital with a smile and confident stride is what counts for us the most at VFI.
