Venkat Reddy, a 25-year-old man, lost vision in his left eye without any prior history of trauma or injury to the eye. His left eye began to shrink until it was the size of a marble. He sought out the help of many eye specialists, but each one refused to operate on him. They all said that the chances of his sight returning post-operation were very slim to none.

On July 2022, Venkat Reddy underwent a surgery that has left him smiling ever since Dr. Anina Abraham, who performed the surgery, describes it as one of the most difficult and challenging surgeries she has ever done. Within an hour, she managed to attach the detached retina and choroid and injected silicone oil into the eye. To minimize any inflammation, Venkat was given intravenous steroids. The operation was a huge success, and his vision has returned to near normal. His eye now almost looks as big as the right eye.
