Twelve elderly disadvantaged patients suffering from cataracts, including 102-year-old Nomanhlanhla Hadebe from the iLembe district in northern KwaZulu-Natal, have had their eyesight restored, thanks to an eye specialist with a big heart and a hospital that cares about the community it serves.

Mrs Hadebe’s granddaughter, Busisiwe Mabaso, says hergrandmother is “absolutely delighted” that she can again see after recently undergoing a cataract operation, which was performed free-of-charge by ophthalmologist Dr Malcolm Carey at Netcare Alberlito Hospital in Ballito.

“My grandmother has said repeatedly over the past few years that she wants to be able to see her grandchildren and the world around her once more. Now her dream has come true and she is overjoyed to be seeing again. She is grateful to Dr Carey, Netcare Alberlito Hospital and the other sponsors of this project for having made this cataract operation possible.”
