A ten-year-old boy was able to see his family again after losing his vision as a result of retinal detachment and a macular hole.

Ali Musallam lost his sight in the left eye a couple of years ago before losing his vision in the right eye and becoming blind as a result of the detachment of the retina.

A medical team at the Eye Hospital in Tripoli conducted a complex operation for Ali in which he had the retina returned to his right eye with silicone oil.

The hospital said the operation was a success, and the child has regained his vision, expressing the joy of the hospital’s medical staff, led by Dr. Fathi Zanbeel, the retinal surgeon who operated.

Major surgeries are being performed in the Eye Hospital of Tripoli as part of the localization of treatment program launched by the Ministry of Health last year.
