“I can see now and can play with my friends. Before the operation everything looked blurry. Now I can see," said four-year old Simul Babu. Simul had cataract surgery at ORBIS's partner Deep Eye Care Foundation in Rangpur, Bangladesh.

ORBIS works with partners in Bangladesh to improve access to eye care services for children.
