A 26 years old student of the University of  Ado Ekiti , Ojo Roseline Temitope, who had  been partially blinded  for about six months  has now  regained her sight following  a surgical operation she underwent at the Ophthalmological Centre, University Teaching Hospital, Ado Ekiti

Speaking with the newsmen while on a thank- you-visit to the teaching hospital, Ado Ekiti yesterday, Temitope noted  that she had been with the sight defect  for sometime because she could not raise the sum of  N1m needed for her treatment  in an undisclosed hospital

Fate was said to have smiled on her shortly after one of  her lecturers   in  UNAD assisted her by contacting   Ekiti State Commissioner for Health, Dr Femi Thomas, who according to her,  treated her free of charge through the state free eye treatment.

Temitope who is from Ibadan, Oyo State said she was not born blind, but developed the ailment in January this year with a partial blindness  but later  degenerated to full blindness in 6 months after

Commenting on the success story of the patient, the state’s Commissioner for Health, Dr Femi Thomas said Temitope had one of her eyes  operated  by the Cuban doctors employed by the state government, assured that the other leg of the operation would soon be carried out

The commissioner said the motive  behind  the establishment of the eye centre by the state government  was to make it the best in West Africa

Thomas said the centre had treated about 3,968 patients free –of_ charge  when the centre was flagged –off in January this year,adding that a total of 1,700 glasses have been distributed free of charge to patients with various eye problems
