A medical team at the ophthalmology department of Sheikh Khalifa Specialist Hospital in Ras Al Khaimah saved a 10-year-old citizen from losing his eyesight after a successful surgery.
The child’s eyes were injured when he was playing with fireworks at his home. The fireworks resulted in corneal burns, bleeding in the front part of the eye and cataracts.
Dr. Ewi Seok Han, a consultant ophthalmologist at the hospital, explained that the fireworks caused severe burns to the child’s eye and severe trauma in the front part, which led to blurring of vision and pain in the eye, due to the explosion.
Dr. Seok pointed out that the child had a bleeding inside the eyeball and permanent damage to its tissue, which caused blurred vision, headache and pain, due to the increased intraocular pressure.
“Doctors diagnosed the case of the eyeball and found that there were burns in the cornea and bleeding in the front part, so they treated the burn by removing the dead tissue, installed contact lenses and placed anti-bacterial drops in the eye,” Dr Seok added.
"This is the only reported case in the world" of twins who were presumed to be male at birth undergoing female gender confirmation surgery together, said Dr Jose Carlos Martins of the Transgender Center Brazil, a clinic in the southeastern city of Blumenau.
