The mother of a 10-month-old baby Funmilayo Oladiran who is going blind on both eyes, is begging well meaning Nigerians for assistance to correct the defect in the eye which was increasingly bulging out of its socket due to cataract.
According to Punch newspaper the mother said
“We took him to LAUTECH Teaching Hospital, Osogbo, two surgeries were carried out on him but I was told that there remains an operation to be carried out to stop the cataract from spreading to the other eye and for him to see, that is why I am calling on anybody who can assist us to save my baby from blindness”.
Cataract in a baby is just do sad, but it does not have to lead to blindness. It can be treated especially if the procedure is done early. If you can do anything to help this woman and her child, please do.
