I am writing to everyone who can help me!
On New Years’ Day 2018 my 5 years old son AUGUSTAS suffered an eye injury inflicted by a flying firework. His eye was severely damaged. As a consequence of this injury he was treated for burn of conjunctiva, cornea of the left eye, and Corneal II-III degree burns. The keratoplasty was performed with the amniotic membrane. The course of the illness is deteriorating. The OS corneal epithelium defect remained. He is unable to open his left eye. Now AUGUSTAS does not see with his left eye.
His diagnosis - conjunctival scars symblepharon coj. palp.et conj.bilbi OS H11.2 Complications-burn of cornea and conjuncticval sac. Status post combustionemchemicam cornea et cojunctivae OS T26.1 The nerre etthe eye is functional branch retinal is visible. My son is in need of urgent eye treatment at a London eye clinic .AUGUSTAS requires eye transplantation, which can restore regeneration up to 90 %. Transplantation and treatment should be done until the child reaches age 8. Time is limited, otherwise nothing can be done.
I am asking everyone who is able to help to raise some money in order to help to preserve my child’s eye, eye sight and appearance. A great deal of help is required to help AUGUSTAS. My husband and I are trying to be strong, but it is hard financially as we are from Lithuania and we were strongly recommended to take our child to the UK for treatment as the operation required is very complicated and requires highly professional medics in order to bring his sight back. Thank you very much for reading this story and please donate if you can. I do not ask for much – every little bit helps!
