36 year old Togore Parbat had been suffering from poor vision from a very young age. Her husband was orthopedically impaired and was unable to work. Togore used to manage a small shop earning around 50 INR a day. It was not unusual for customers to cheat Togore while paying for an item because they knew her vision was poor.
The Visit to a vision centre
Togore came to know about Beleghata Vision Centre, supported by Standard Chartered Bank, from a neighbor. The Optometrist there suggested that Togore have a surgery immediately because she was suffering from a hyper mature cataract which was at its final stage and hence had to be removed quickly. After her cataract surgery, Togore was thrilled to quickly return to living a normal life. She now earns Rs. 3000 per month from the same small shop and is no longer cheated by her customers.
