Like other children, Pruthvi enjoys going to school and playing. But unlike other 4-year olds, Pruthvi helps his parents with mundane tasks at home, a happiness that his family has secured thanks to the parents' vigilance.
Congenital cataract and delayed care had caused vision loss for Pruthvi's parents. Aware of the high risk involved, they had brought their baby over for a detailed eye check, right after his birth, and at the tender age of 6 weeks, Pruthvi had undergone a successful cataract surgery at LVPEI's Vijayawada campus.
The happy parents now no longer depend on Pruthvi's grandparents or uncle to escort them to the hospital for check-ups. “We now have Pruthvi to help us around,” they proudly say.
“It is indeed inspiring and motivating to see how timely medical intervention can change the lives of a child and his family as well,” says Dr Niranjan K Pehere.
