Shabana Bibi's Story
Shabana Bibi, aged 29, hails from Multan and is looking for any help that you can offer the lady to make her right eye cataract surgery possible. This cataract surgery is known as phacoemulsification with an intraocular lens placement (Phaco + IOL). This is one of the most effective solutions for recovering and saving fast 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. A surgery that Shabana needs desperately for her fast deteriorating eyesight, but one that she cannot afford!
Shabana Bibi hails from an underprivileged family. Things were always tough from a financial point of view. But ever since her husband met an accident that crippled him, life has been an arduous struggle for Shabana Bibi. The only stream of income that keeps life going in Shabana Bibi’s house comes from a small dairy setup. Sometimes, it is not even 10,000 PKR! Supporting a five-membered family in this small income is about as tough as things can get. Throw in Shabana Bibi’s eye surgery in this equation and things become even more imbalanced. This is exactly the reason why Shabana Bibi has not undergone the recommended treatment yet. She says:
“My choices are cruelly simple. Ensure that my kids have three meals a day or make sure that my eyesight doesn’t deteriorate to a point from where recovery is impossible. And even though the thought of losing my eyesight is intimidating enough to make me stop blinking, I will always put family first and above everything. In fact, if it were not for the nice people at Transparent Hands who made me all optimistic about my chances of having eye surgery, I would have dispelled the thought of my treatment from my mind a long time ago”

Shabana Bibi's Story
Shabana, aged 29, a resident of Multan was diagnosed with a cataract in her right eye that was becoming the root cause of her short-sightedness. After an eye exam the ophthalmologist advised her to undergo Phaco with an intraocular lens (IOL). For this purpose, she was admitted to Bakhtawar Amin Memorial Trust Hospital, where the surgery was performed by Dr. Hassan Raza on 25.02.2021. Her faulty lens matter inside the left eye was removed, and an artificial lens was placed. She was discharged from the hospital in satisfactory condition after one day of stay. Shabana is now hopeful of living a better life as she gradually recovers from the surgery.
