This incident occurred on a change in the school of one of Russian cities. Tenth graders were playing. The boy called out, he turned around, and at this point in his side flew sharp plastic square. It is a harmless object hit exactly in the eye, breaking it and destroying the retina. The child was blind.
One operation done soon, send him by ambulance to the hospital, another well-respected in the Moscow institute. A sentence – the retina is completely destroyed, chances for its recovery there. You can live with only one eye. Well, yes? This is because the doctors say, and my parents think otherwise. Began searching for a foreign expert. We have been in a prolonged correspondence with the boy's father and preparing to take the patient for consultation, but he had disappeared. A few months later I received a letter back: "Let's go to you for advice. Hopes for a treatment there is little, but still want to listen to the opinion of Israeli experts.
" "Come." In the first I receive at the clinic the boy's father explained his sudden disappearance. They decided to go to Germany to the world luminary, a professor of ophthalmology, where they promised to help. But after examining the decision in Germany was short: "Nothing can be done. The eye is lost. Hyundai is likely to agree. " A professor verbally added the father, who tried to find at least some chance to help: "Neither Israel nor America will not help you. Do not waste your time and money. " But the parents acted differently. Hear other arguments on the topic with bridgewater associates. And you will see that chance to restore up to 30% of the retina is. " This was unexpected, even unlikely. The surgery was scheduled, but the boy was very nervous, he was simply afraid. In fact, after the last unsuccessful operations in the Moscow institute, he decide a course of soothing, balancing physical therapy for ten days in our clinic. On the appointed day operation was carried out. It lasted a long time. Professor with a jeweler's precision and restored the retina regained it. Everything went smoothly as could not be more. I spent the night in a hotel boy already. Six months. Local Russian ophthalmologist, constantly see patients, confirmed that the retina is in good condition, and from time to never gets better. After surgery, the patient saw the light, then his eyes began to feel the change in light intensity, not so long ago I was told that he already sees a shadow moving people and cars on the street. Of course, I would like to recovery has been even faster, but what we have done, is the equivalent of almost a miracle. By the way, when dealing with the boy's parents discovered that an unexpected solution lucky boy to Germany but not in Israel, was due to that the Russian media to convince people that the war in Israel, always shooting, walking around with guns. Patients driving to us, as in war. As they laughed, and not only they, when they saw the Israeli reality, the pure sky, bright Sun, busy streets, gorgeous shops and bazaars, crowds of friendly people, filled with numerous restaurants and cafes, beautiful beaches. How well patients refused treatment in Israel because of false information Russian press? Because of the gross misinformation issued by the journalists to serve their interests. But that is another aspect of the problem. B. Chait, MD, director of the clinic KHAIBORMED
