“Our son is going blind!”

Matt Vilkas - 700 Club Producer

Rahul's parents were concerned when they noticed he had problems with his right eye.

"We saw a white colored patch in his eye when he was a baby. As he got older, the white patch grew bigger," Rahul’s father explained.

"He would always cover his eye, because it hurt him so much," his mother said. "Sunlight also irritated it and made it difficult for him to walk outside. So we were scared that he wouldn't be able to see out of that eye."

But then a CBN medical camp visited their village.

"They told us that our son had a cataract," Rahul's father said." Then they said that they would give him a free surgery!"

At the hospital, the doctor explained that Rahul was close to losing vision in his right eye permanently.

"He has a central cataract. That means the surgery should be performed as soon as possible," the doctor said.

Rahul's father was worried about the outcome of the surgery, but he knew it was the best chance to save his son’s sight.

After the surgery, the doctor explained, "The cataract was removed and a very good quality intra-ocular lens has been put [in]. This is a world-class lens."

The next day, the bandage was removed. Rahul could see clearly!

"I am extremely happy that my boy’s operation went well and his eye is perfectly fine!" his dad said with a big smile.

"Now he plays a lot outside without any discomfort," said his mother. "And he really likes to read and write. He is so happy. It is such a remarkable change."

"I know that when he grows up, he will be able to study well, get a good job and have a bright future," his dad added.
