Mehreen Bibi's Story
Not discriminating in any way, but seeing little ones suffer from a disease or a disorder is simply heart breaking. Grief and agony doubles when it is your own little ones who are at the receiving end of fate. This is exactly what Mehreen Bibi’s parents are going through right now. Mehreen, an eight-year-old kid, suffers from a cataract in her left eye. Mehreen’s family hails from Muzaffargarh and is currently battling hard with the post-pandemic financial crisis. Her father is a labourer, and in that 400-500 rupees which he earns every day, he has to provide for a family of eight. No matter how bad every member of this 8-membered family living in a 4-Marla house wants Mehreen to recover from her ocular condition, the current financial status of Mehreen’s family doesn’t allow them to afford the prescribed treatment i.e. Left Phaco IOL.
Phaco IOL is short for phacoemulsification with an intraocular lens. This is one of the most effective solutions for recovering and saving the deteriorating eyesight due to cataract. First, the cloudy lens is dissolved using ultrasound waves, which are then removed via suction. Then, an artificial lens is inserted in its place. Effective but well out of reach! Mehreen’s father says:
“She is closer to my heart, much closer than you can imagine. Our hearts beat in unity, I love my daughter that much! But I cannot be oblivious to the harsh realities of life either. There is no way I would be able to save up for my daughter’s eye treatment. In fact, if it were not for Transparent Hands, I would have lost all hope already!
Transparent Hands is giving Mehreen’s father a lot of hope, and we are not going to disappoint the man! But making sure that Mehreen’s eyesight is preserved with the help of a Phaco IOL is going to be possible only with your help. You know the patient, you know the story! All that is left for you to do is to DONATE for Mehreen Bibi’s Left Phaco IOL NOW!

Mehreen Bibi's Story
Mehreen Bibi, aged 8, a resident of Kot Addu was diagnosed with a cataract in her left eye that was becoming the root cause of her short-sightedness. After an eye exam, the ophthalmologist advised Mehreen Bibi to undergo LMA with an intraocular lens (IOL). For this purpose, she was admitted to Bakhtawar Amin Memorial Trust Hospital, where the surgery was performed by Dr. Asif Manzoor on 27.02.2021. Her faulty lens matter inside the left eye was removed, and an artificial lens was placed. She was discharged from the hospital in a satisfactory condition the same day. Mehreen Bibi is now hopeful of living a better life as she gradually recovers from the surgery.
