Mahika conquers squint with expert surgery and treatment
Baby Kurmapu Mahika showed symptoms of inward crossing of her eyes at age 3. Even though the local doctor in Korba, Chhattisgarh assured that the squint will resolve with age, the concerned parents brought Mahika to LVPEI Visakhapatnam where she was prescribed glasses, which helped control the squint to an extent. Later, she underwent surgery under the skilful hands of Dr Virender Sachdeva.
To improve her vision, Mahika was advised vision stimulation exercises along with patch therapy (the good eye is covered, so that the lazy eye is stimulated to function). “Mahika has regained good vision and her squint is corrected. We are happy with the outcome, and are thankful to the entire team at LVPEI,” says K Srinivas Rao, Mahika’s father.
