A 47-year-old UAE resident was able to see her face in the mirror clearly for the first time in 15 years after undergoing complicated and high-risk eye surgery at RAK Hospital’s Eye Care Centre. King Khaton Loqman Saleh Shaban had been facing trouble with her eyesight for more than a decade, complaining of blurred vision, redness in the eyes and intermittent pain. Her vision was so poor that she could barely see anything around and was severely shortsighted. She was prescribed eye drops to relieve her pain and discomfort, but the condition had affected her quality of life considerably. Unfortunately, due to financial constraints she could not access medical assistance earlier.
