 Nithyanandam
Nithyanandam,52 years old,lives in Tiruvallur. As an agricultural labourer, he was the chief earning member of the family. But then, he had to give up his job on account of deteriorating vision. The family was in crisis as earnings went down. Nithyanandam heard about Sankara Nethralaya and decided to visit the hospital. The doctors examined Nithyanandam at Sankara Nethralaya and suggested he undergo an operation of the eye. He agreed for the surgery. The operation was done free of cost successful and Nithyanandam's vision was restored. As a post-surgery care requirement he was suggested a pair of spectacles, which were also provided free of cost. He is now productively employed and is once again the breadwinner for his family. He is now able to take care of most of the financial needs of his family
 
 Ray of hope for Nagarajan
Eye-related problems had not only affected the academic performance of ten-year old Nagarajan but also his extracurricular activities. Nagarajan happened to attend one of the camps conducted by Sankara Nethralaya at Chidambaram. Following a through eye examination and teleconsultation with an ophthalmologist at Sankara Nethralaya, he was advised to undergo a vitreo retinal surgery. Nagarajan was brought to the main hospital where a free-of-cost vitreo retinal surgery was performed on him His vision has shown remarkable improvement. He now actively takes part in all school activities. His academic performance has also improved.
 
 Gift of sight
Kathayeeammal of Ambattur, was selling groundnuts on the roadside. She was suffering due to poor vision and the problem intensified with each passing day. Her search for a cure brought her to Sankara Nethralaya where she learnt she had developed cataract in both eyes. The financial condition of Kathayeeammal was such that she could hardly even pay for one surgery. Sankara Nethralaya came to her rescue and the cataract surgery was performed free of cost. Now, Kathayeeammal is back at work of selling groundnuts in her village. Her improved eyesight, after the surgery, has helped her in a big way and now she is able to look after her family of five with ease.
