For a working individual, the safety and health of his or her eyes is incredibly important, especially when one’s work involves any form of manual labour, where having perfect vision becomes paramount. However, due to the dangers involved in working in factories, these same workers often have to deal with a spectrum of different injuries.
Bajrang Singh worked in a chemical factory in Mumbai. Three years ago, Bajrang’s eyes were severely injured during an accident at his workplace. On a seemingly regular day, Bajrang had asked his coworkers to move a lot of chemicals from one place to another. During the shifting, some of the chemicals started slowly leaking out.
Bajrang quickly noticed that his coworkers had taken safety precautions and had worn protective eye gear. However, he had not worn any protective gear. When the chemicals fell onto him, Bajrang felt a severe burning and had an immediate swelling in his eyes.
Bajrang visited the Tej Kohli Cornea Institute wherein he presented his case to Dr. Sayan Basu. Upon examination, Dr. Basu noted that the chemical had burnt the cells on the surface of Bajrang’s eyes. In addition to that, Bajrang had also sustained severe corneal damage. After a thorough examination, the doctors at the institute conducted a combination of stem cell therapy and corneal transplantation for Bajrang.
Thanks to the expertise of the doctors at the Tej Kohli Cornea Institute, Bajrang’s treatment went well. Bajrang was able to recover from his condition and even returned to work again. The doctors find it heartening to witness Bajrang’s recovery and see him regain normalcy in his life.
Bajrang had lost hope of being able to see again, but he now feels a deep sense of gratitude to the team of doctors who returned his vision to him. He now recommends the hospital’s family-like environment and treatment to everyone who seeks his opinion.
