Congenital cataract surgery for 13years old boy in India
Thanks in advance for answering my query. My elder son who is 13 years now got opaque retina in his left eye at birth time. We consulted the doctors at 40 days of age. They said it is congenital cataract which might be caused due to rubella or any other virus. We don't have any family history of the case. But the doctors said as ONE EYE IS NORMAL, THERE ARE CHANCES OF IT GETTING INFECTED IF WE OPT FOR SURGERY. Moreover the chances of 100 % vision is also doubtful. They asked us to be content and in his early teens it may be corrected artificially.
Another eye is normal now and cataract eye attained squint. Now he is feeling inferior and pressurizing for removal of cataract. He wants at least cosmetic surgery to correct the squint. I feel guilty now after reading in websites now that it has to be corrected in infancy stage to restore vision. IS IT TRUE? I was with hopes that he will gain eyesight. PLEASE HELP ME TO RESTORE THE EYESIGHT. IAM WILLING TO GET HIM OPERATED BY AFFORDING ANY EXPENDITURE in any country . PLEASE HELP.
