Help Save my sight
Organized by: Akaninyene Etuk
As a kid I had an injury to my right eye, I was hit by a cutlass while working in the farm, this accident affected both eyes it made the two eyes to swell. Since this accident I have not had the finance to go for operation and my eyes has never remained the same since then. My eyes looks red in the day, and makes me feel so ashamed, people say I look like I am smoking pot or I am on drugs. My eyes produces so much pressure that I have difficulty concentrating on my vision. Over the years, I have been secretly using “get-the-red-out” drops and suffering in Silence, but this only works for a short period, the redness returns as soon as the drugs wears off. I have difficulty reading, and I have blur vision. Public speaking is also a problem, because I am self conscious and embarrassed of my condition. I have been managing this condition for the past years. Now I am returning to school to study, and the most important tool is my eyesight. Brothers and Sisters, I need your help for a corrective operation on my eyes, so as to help focus on my studies, and achieve a purpose in life. Your efforts are very much appreciated. Thank you.
