Mrs Shanta is facing the complaint of irritation, pricking sensation, blurred vision in her right eye since a year. So she visited an Eye surgeon in her place at Nasik. The eye surgeon advised her eye drops which gave her relief for few days but she never recovered from her complaints. Days were passing and she was getting tensed and was depressed from her complaints as she was not able to carry her daily work. Her husband could not bear the pain of her loving wife and helped her in making food and daily routine work.

Mrs Shanta met many eye specialists; they use to give her eye drops, which only gave her temporary relief. On using eye drops Mrs Shanta uses to get time being a relief for 2-3 days. But the pricking sensation was always there. For every step, she required someone’s help. She could not make the differences in steps. Everything seems darker, blurred for her.  Feeling of getting dependent disturbed her, making her caged in her home.
