In a similar type of case, a 55 years old patient from the Rajgangpur area was not able seen for the last six years.

This patient, who was admitted under Dr. Arun Kumar Panigrahi Cornea & Anterior Segment Specialist of JP Hospital, complained of vision loss in his left eye. Before coming to JP Hospital, this patient had visited other hospitals for treatment but could not get his vision back. Finally, after hearing about JP Ophthal Department & its superior facilities from his family & friends, this patient decided to come here for treatment under BSKY.

After almost 10 days of observation, when the patient became stable, phaco with foldable IOL was performed by Dr. Arun.

A foldable lens (IOL) of the required power is then implanted.

Finally, after two days when the eye bandage was being removed, the patient & his family waited with fear as well as excitement. Can the patient see this world again? Yes, the bandage was removed and the patient indeed could see a lot of tears of joy coming out. Everyone was crying. The patient could not believe that he can see again. The patient and their family profusely extended their thanks & greetings to the treating doctor, the JP management, Odisha Govt for the BSKY card which made his treatment free and his friends who helped him.
