Many people have resources and knowledge and they can easily recover eye damage through operation. But what of those who have never thought of being operated upon? They don''''t have knowlege or resources.
The children suffering from loss of sight since their birth usually have cataract, which is completely curable if the sufferer is not upto five years old, but parents show negligence, and often they don''''t know the sensitivity of the matter, that make thier children blind forever.
