11 years old boy blind with bilateral cataracts

🌈🌈🌈 Togo Mission Trip: πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘ This young 11 years old boy blind with bilateral cataracts has been waiting all his life for a doctor to operate on him. Dr. Kondrot performed bilateral cataract removal both on the same day because he needs to be under general anesthesia so we don’t want to risk multiple sessions of him in the operating room. Surgery went well with no complication. Here he is one day post-op. He is still very groggy from anesthesia and he also needs to get accustomed to the light and seeing again.
His parents are very happy. πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘In a few days he will be running around playing soccer and going to school like all the kids his age.
He has a brighter future now.
We are sure we when we come back to Togo in a few years we will get to see a handsome happy young man with a bright future!
What a great outcome for him. We can’t ask for anything better. Β  πŸ’šβ€οΈπŸ’›πŸ§‘πŸ’›πŸ§‘
