They have not seen each other clearly in years. Their ability to contribute to the family farm is very limited. They want more. Adorable Manisara and her husband Durga are Nepalese elders, both blinded over time by cataracts. Outreach healthcare workers identify them as prime candidates for Seva Foundation’s monthly free eye surgery clinic. Their journey is shot up close and intimate as the elders experience loving attention on their long trip on foot and during pre-op anxiety at the clinic. In one day, their eye doctor and her team do fifty plus cataract removals and interocular lens replacements. A day after the six-minute operation, the bandages are removed. It’s an emotional moment for Manisara and Durga. Witness this everyday miracle, renewing the vision and possibility of entire communities.
