Mildred Gyempeh is a 63 years old lady from Yeji. She was taken to Mr Kombat Jackson, the eye nurse in Yeji by her daughter with being blind for several months, not even being able to walk around alone any more. She was diagnosed with bilateral cataracts and was sent to NCEH in tamale for surgery. First the right eye was operated on. The patient saw quite well already even 2 hours after the procedure. She and her daughter passed the night in the garden of NCEH and returned to Yeji early next morning on bus and ferry. The second picture shows her 3 weeks later, just before the surgery on her left eye, already happy about her good vision in the right.
Mr Seidu Mohammed 60 disabled since birth. He also has been blind for several years from cataracts. He underwent cataract surgery on his right eye at Northerm Community Eye Hospital last week and now is able to see very well. His other eye Will be operated on tomorrow. NCEH also arranged for a new wheelchair for him through the Shekinah clinic as his own in broken.
