Noor Fatima's Story
Noor Fatima, a three year old girl, from Muzaffargarh, has seen much at such an infantile age without having the vision to actually see- Noor’s world is colourless.
Three years old Noor Fatima, has been suffering from blurry visions since birth. Noor cannot play or go out to see the world like other normal kids. This short sightedness has limited her life and is holding her back from living her childhood to the fullest. Noor’s family contacted Transparent Hands and came for a consultation from our doctor. She was diagnosed with Bilateral Congenital Aphakia. Congenital Aphakia is the absence of the lens in the eye since birth. After the diagnosis, Noor was advised to undergo a right eye Anterior Vitrectomy and IOL under general anaesthesia. The goals of Anterior Vitrectomy are to remove the vitreous from the anterior chamber and to allow an IOL to be placed.
“Sometimes, due to cloudy vision, Noor gets very irritated and starts crying hysterically. That’s when I feel helpless the most.” -Noor’s father.

Therefore, we request you to donate for this cause. Noor’s world is colourless and we are determined to help make Noor’s vision clear and that is not possible without your help.
