Ayesha Allah Ditta's Story
Ayesha, aged 7, a resident of Multan is suffering from developmental cataract affecting her left eye. A developmental cataract occurs early in childhood. Cataract is a clouding of the clear lens that eventually interferes with vision. Some signs and symptoms of cataracts include: dim, clouded or blurred vision, difficulty with vision during night, increasing sensitivity of the eye to light and glare, seeing “halos” around lights, double vision in affected eyes. In order to heal from ailment, Ayesha has been advised to undergo LMA of her left eye and placement of the intraocular lens (IOL). LMA with an intraocular lens (IOL) is a brief surgical procedure where the cataract-affected lens inside the eye is removed, and replaced with an artificial lens in its place. As, Ayesha awaits LMA of the left eye with an intraocular lens (IOL), her father shares their ordeal in the following words:
“I am a daily wager. I earn an average of PKR. 400 – 700 per day, sometimes I even come home empty handed. We have a house of our own, but with this amount of salary I have to cater to the needs of my family that includes my wife, four sons and a daughter. In these circumstances I can not afford to pay for my daughter’s eye surgery. But this surgery is crucial for her well-being as her vision is also deteriorating.”
