A man identified as Samuel Oteng has narrated his sad story of how he mysteriously went blind under his least expectation.
During an exclusive interview with First Lady on BrownGH TV, the 54-year-old man said it all started when he had moved from his one-man business to join a team in a construction work.
Samuel Oteng, who is believed to be a hardworking man said he started his life as a photographer but later jumped into clothes business when the photographing business started dwindling due to the invention of mobile phones.
He added that he started selling cloth but it got to a time where the business started going down and as a family man who has four kids and a wife, he needed to find something doing to secure a better life for himself and his family hence his decision to venture into construction.
He said he was one day carrying a cement bag on his head and the cement tore into two and sprinkled into his eyes.
Even though he started feeling pains in the eyes after washing his face with water, Mr Samuel Oteng said he took no step because he thought the pains are just mere and will vanish in days.
However, he told First Lady that he started seeing things blur which scared him to rush to the hospital and upon his arrival, he was sadly informed that the cement that sprinkled into his eyes has caused a glaucoma infection and needs to be operated on.
A few days after returning home from the hospital, Mr Oteng said his right eyes ceased to see things clearly except for lights and something shiny only. So he went back to the hospital for the commencement of the operation.
He added that the doctors informed him that since only one eye was working properly, they will operate on that one first to avoid touches but unfortunately, after the operation, the right eye which wasn’t seeing things well went off totally.
Since one cannot cheat nature and there was so much pressure on the remaining eye, things got worse and had to go off which rendered him blind permanently.
As it stands, his daily movement including the upkeep of the house lies on the wife who is also finding it difficult to balance and put things together.
Indeed, nobody can narrate the happenings of tomorrow, it can equally happen to you and me. Our brother and father at this time need the support of you and me.
