Woman who lost her eyesight to cataract has a new one!
SANTA CLARA, Calif.
— A woman whose eye-lashes were permanently disfigured after a cataractic cataractor accident has been able to have her new eye-glasses fitted.
A photo of the new glasses, obtained by ABC News, shows a black dot in the center of the lens, as well as a black circle.
The accident happened about 10 years ago when the cataracter was taking a nap.
Dr. Raghuram Parashar, who has worked on the catarract problem, said the condition affects 1.5 to 2 percent of people.
In the case of the woman in this photo, her new glasses are nearly twice the price of her previous ones, he said.
He said it’s unlikely the new lenses would be as good as the old ones.
“You have to be careful with them,” Parashars said.
“They may have a slightly different shape.
I would not recommend putting them in your eye.”
Parashar said the woman had an eye surgery about six months ago and that her condition improved.
She is now able to work from home and said she has no regrets about getting the new eyewear.
“I am glad I got them,” she said.
