£535raised of £4,000 target by 8 supporters

    Weʼve raised £535 to help fund a congenital glaucoma operation

    Funded on Monday, 6th August 2018

    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


    Fola Baruwa was diagnosed with bilateral congenital glaucoma at the age of 11 months. He had a left trabuculectomy - and examination under anaesthesia on 17/05/2017.

    Findings included bilateral haab's striae and pale cupped disc with VCDR of 1.0 right eye and 0.95 left eye. He was also being managed for allergic conjunctivitis. He had a right trabuculectomy as well as re suturing of the left conjunctiva on 31/05/2017.

    The left lens was also noted to be subluxated. He had EUA and cycloplegic refraction post operatively which revealed an astigmatism of -11.5DS + 1.75DC X 180 degrees Right eye and -8.50DS + 1.75 X 180 degrees Left eye. He presented 3 weeks ago with a right upper eyelid swelling and was noted to have a corneal ulcer which healed with the use of antibiotic eye ointment.

    He was subsequently noted to have developed a cataract in the right eye a week ago. Ocular ultrasound scan showed a right vitreous and retinal detachment and features of left vitritis. He is presently on steroid antibiotic eye ointment in the right eye and syrup acetazolamide 100mg bd.

    Fola has been referred to Moorfields Hospital in Dubai ( Branch of Moorfields Eye Hospital London) and there is hope of him regaining full sight.

    I am crowdfunding to support Fola's parents towards the cost of the surgery as they have spent all their savings on their child's condition. All money raised will be for this sole purpose.Please support to give Fola his sight.
