Ramaswamy is 72 years. He wasn’t able to see beyond a few feet because of cataract in both eyes. He loved to cycle but his movement was restricted due to poor vision. Surgery has done him a world of good as he can now ride his bicycle again. Ramaswamy is grateful for the efforts of the surgical team. He has regained his confidence which has added life to his years. Curable blindness is taken up on a war footing at Sankara and people like Ramaswamy have been given a fresh lease of life.
