Beneficiaries of free eye screening, surgery thank Rotary club of Palmgrove Estate

General eye Surgery

Community Hall, General Hospital, Marina Lagos, was jam packed with beneficiaries of the free eye screening and cataract surgeries in their glasses to express gratitude to Rotary Club of Lagos Palmgrove Estate and Indo Eye Care Foundation.

The gathering turned to testimony giving of sort as about 600 beneficiaries of the programme wished they had the opportunity of telling their stories and conveying their appreciation to those who came to their rescue at no cost.

Sounds of clapping rent the air as those that had the privilege of sharing their testimonies relived their painful and sympathetic experience before they were operated and the joy that has been restored as a result of the sight being restored.

General eye Surgery beneficiaries

The beneficiaries cut across segments of the society, age and gender. Among the joyful celebrants were Emmanuel Adeboye 11, primary six pupil, Fatai Saib 11, primary 5 pupil and Bose Olojo, 10, all of whom appeared in their glasses to show their gratitude. Emmanuel shook his eyes with needle, which affected the eye and since then could not see with the eye. He said he could now see after the eye after the surgery.

At the age of three, Fatai, on his part, said he lost his one of his eyes after an operation. The jubilant young man he could see now with two eyes.

Bose was having infection in her two eyes and could not see very well until the class teacher began to complain that she could not read things written on the board. The ugly development, she said earned her a nickname of black albino. According to her, it was at the Lagos University Teaching Hospital (LUTH) she was diagnosed to suffering cataract.

She said though her parents paid N150,000.00 for her treatment, she was unable to go for the surgery.
