Thank you all for your duas.
Forty years ago, just as I had topped at University in BSc (Hons.), and had dreams of doing a doctorate in Quantum Chemistry with Linus Pauling, the leading eye specialist in South Asia told me my vision had a maximum of 6 months to go.
All dreams were shattered. I dreaded the life ahead of me. I thought I won't be able to work, and earn a living, so I shouldn't marry.
Yet, Allah (swt) gave me so much, all undeserved. I managed to get a doctorate, though not in Chemistry. I have a wonderful wife, a son and a daughter. I have worked up to retirement age (or at least been employed, and paid my taxes, some say far more than my share
). I have done Hajj; I hope it is accepted by Allah.
And, glaucoma is treatable now. Cataract surgery is being done. Laser is being used for surgery of lenses and removal of debris. And retinal repair has also come to Pakistan.
Perhaps one day the vitreous humour (the medium between the lens and the retina), will also be repalceable.
All praise is for Allah (swt) alone. Only He knows what is in store for us, and He alone can change it for the better.
