For the first time since his birth, despite being thousands of miles away from home and communicating in a non-native language, I felt assured that my son was in safe hands
'Mama, you just had the bad luck to have a baby like this. Your child is born blind.' Hearing this from the doctors in Taiwan completely shattered April, a young mother. Her first son was born healthy and she failed to understand what went wrong during her second pregnancy. Not ready to give up yet, she connected with Dr Ken Nischal in the USA. On his advice, she brought her son to LVPEI Hyderabad. Chin Yu was born with a very rare condition called 'Cornea Plana' where the cornea is flatter than normal. Correct diagnosis and appropriate surgical treatment helped in restoring his vision. It was heartening for us to hear April say, 'For the first time since his birth, despite being thousands of miles away from home and communicating in a nonnative language, I felt assured that my son was in safe hands. I had complete trust in Dr Muralidhar Ramappa, his treating doctor. It is such a joy to see Chih Yu playing with his toys. What is even more important is that my son can see me, something that I had even stopped dreaming about a few months ago.'
