Story

Hello I am K. Omana, I am a single mother and struggling to make ends meet during the Pandemic. Upon that I was diagnosed in March 2021 with Diabetic Retinopathy and have lost 80% vision in one eye, blurring in the other and have fluid collected in both my retinas. Each Accentrix injection dose costs around 26000 for one eye and I need a single dose for both eyes at the earliest to stop further loss of vision plus laser therapy. My sugar levels even with medicine is not coming below 580

Diabetic retinopathy, a complication of diabetes that affects the eyes is caused by damage to the blood vessels in the tissue at the back of the eye (retina).
Early symptoms include floaters, blurriness, dark areas of vision and difficulty perceiving colours. Blindness can occur.
Mild cases may be treated with careful diabetes management. Advanced cases may require laser treatment or surgery. Please help me raise the funds for the injection at the earliest plus for my laser treatment as well. My son needs me and I cannot live without vision as a provider of the house.
