Volunteer Eye Camp Adds a Touch of Spiritual Vision in Barsana
When staff remove the bandages from patients’ eyes after surgery, they test their eyesight by showing them a picture of Krishna and asking them to identify minute details of his lotus feet, peacock feather, flute, and eyes. “If they can do it correctly, that means the surgery is successful,” Vishwarup says.
Medical Volunteers Restore Vision in Barsana
Every year since 2002, Bhaktivedanta Hospital has conducted the Barsana Eye Camp to service the thousands of poverty-stricken villagers who cannot see due to cataracts in one or both eyes.
