Dilawar Khalid's Story
Dilawar Khalid, aged 4, a resident of Multan received an eye injury. When his parents took him to the ophthalmologist, his eye injury was treated and he was also diagnosed to have been suffering from developmental cataract affecting his left eye. His vision is also gradually deteriorating. 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, increased sensitivity of the eye to light and glare. In order to heal from this ailment, Dilawar Khalid has been advised to undergo LMA of his 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, Dilawar Khalid awaits LMA of the left eye with an intraocular lens (IOL), his father shares their ordeal in the following words:
“I am a daily wager. I earn an average of PKR. 300 – 500 per day, sometimes I come home empty handed as well. We are living in a rented house. With this amount of salary I have to pay PKR. 1700 worth of rent and cater to the needs of my family that includes my wife, two daughters and Dilawar. In these circumstances I can not afford to pay for my son’s eye surgery. But this surgery is crucial for my son’s well-being as his vision is now deteriorating.”
