Group Director Dr. Anand Jha said that in the past, Neemuch (MP) residents Durgesh (3) and Mahendra (11) were taken by their relatives to the Ophthalmology Department of GBH General Hospital located in Bedwas. Both the children could not see since birth. Here, phaco and oculoplastic surgeon Dr. Swati Jain and photorefractive and cornea surgeon Dr. Nitish Kathuria found that both the children had been suffering from cataracts since birth which he could not see.
