Muhammad Irshad's Story
Muhammad Irshad, aged 49, hails from Multan city and is fast losing his sense of vision, because of a cataract in his right eye. The doctor has prescribed treatment for Muhammad Irshad’s condition commonly known as Phaco IOL. It is short for phacoemulsification with an intraocular lens. This is one of the most effective solutions for recovering and saving the fast deteriorating eyesight. First, the cloudy lens is dissolved using ultrasound waves, which are then removed via suction. Then, an artificial lens is inserted in its place.
So, why hasn’t Muhammad Irshad undergone phacoemulsification already? Well, his current financial status doesn’t allow him to afford a Phaco IOL. You see, Irshad has to support a family of six. And currently, Irshad is not employed either. He has managed things mostly with the help of whatever support his relatives can provide him. He says:
“I used to earn 500 PKR every day before short-sightedness started having the better of me. And while that was nowhere enough either, it was at least something. You will be able to relate to my pain more if you had to pay house rents and manage provisions in this meagre income. But now? Well, now life has turned on its head completely. All of my kids are at an age where all they should be doing is study. So if I am unable to work and earn bread for the family, there is no one else to take the burden. A situation that I hope my family doesn’t have to face, ever”

His faulty lens inside the right eye was removed, and replaced with an artificial lens. He was discharged from the hospital in a satisfactory condition the same day.
