    • A Trip to India- Cataract Removal Camp
      Aditi Verma
      August 5th– August 22nd, 2010
    • Cataract Surgery - Process
      Cut an incision in the eye
      Remove the lens from the eye
      Insert a new lens 
      Rest the eye for a week
    • Cataract Surgery – NDA
      The Natural Disaster Aid sponsored 20 cataract surgeries, each costing $25.
      This includes cost of plastic lens, disposables, medicine and surgical center. Eye surgeon does not charge for surgery as he is a Rotarian.
      Most of the people who are getting eye surgery come from underprivileged section of our society. Some of them are 60 – 75 years old.
      They are laborers, washer men, barbers, vegetable vendors, maid servant and have other menial positions in society - all of which require eyes to maintain their livelihood.
    • ThankYou!
      I would like to take this opportunity to thank the Rotary Club Pataliputra for organizing this camp and making the entire process extremely informational and successful for me.
      I would also like to thank the Rotary Club of Tustin and Irvine for introducing me to RYLA and supporting my decision to travel internationally.
