Indus Net Technologies decided to welcome the new year by giving the gift of vision to few less-fortunate people.
We collaborated (sponsored) with Lions Club of Ranaghat to get cataract surgery done for thirty-three villagers who could not afford the surgery on their own. The surgery were carried out on 21st December in the Eye Hospital operated by Lions Club of Ranaghat in Ranaghat (a small villa/town around 75 kms. away from Kolkata).
Wondering what is cataract?
A cataract is a clouding that develops in the crystalline lens of the eye or in its envelope, varying in degree from slight to complete opacity and obstructing the passage of light. Early in the development of age-related cataract the power of the lens may be increased, causing near-sightedness (myopia), and the gradual yellowing and opacification of the lens may reduce the perception of blue colours. Cataracts typically progress slowly to cause vision loss and are potentially blinding if untreated. (Courtsey WikiPedia)
We will like to express our respect and gratitude towards the people who run this eye hospital for such a noble cause. Our heartfelt thank to them for giving us an opportunity to make a small difference.
