My grandmother is 80 years old and a few years ago she was diagnosed with Glaucoma in her left eye. They government hospital gave her treatment which actually caused her to go blind in that eye.
After that she was scared to go to any government hospital and we can't afford private hospitals.
Last year her right eye started getting blurry and we had no choice but to go to a different government hosp.
They said she had cataract and needed surgery. So in January this year they did an op but a week later realised they didn't remove all so they did another op, then two weeks after she still could see properly and they did a laser on her.
Basically in 3 weeks she had 3 procedures on her right eye.
Since then they have placed her on meds that make her sleep most of the day and she has lost at least 50% of her body weight. She weighs less than 50kgs
It's has been 5-6 months roughly since all the procedures and she is still on the meds, in the past few months her eye has gotten gradually worse, she says she sees black and white- light and dark and now can barely see anything.
We have to take her to the toilet in the night because she has already fallen because on not being able to see. She also has to be assisted to bath.
I'm not sure what to do as I have phoned the hospital and they say she will have to come in to get a check up but she is so weak and at our hospital you can sit from 6:30 in the morning and only get seen to at 4pm if you are lucky.
Has anyone had this experience or can anyone offer some insight into what is going on.
We are so worried because if this eye doesn't get better she will be completely blind
