Ellen Afriyie is a 43-year-old woman who is from Akusey, Ghana.  In the middle of 2016, Afriyie realized that she couldn't see things well. She bought a few medicines to start treating the problem but it kept worsening.

Afriyie visited a couple of hospitals such as Akusey Hospital, Labadi General Hospital, she then proceeded to Korle-Bu and then finally to Pentecost Hospital. It was discovered that Afriyie has Glaucoma and bilateral cataracts. Both eyes got affected, but doctors say due to delay in treatment, they can not do anything about one but can help save the remaining one.
