She is one among many old people who attended Hanamasagara Camp in Kustagi Taluk of Koppal District, Karnataka, India. Hanamasagara is a village about 40 KM from famous Badami Caves. There is a small Srinivasa Temple on top of the hillock which is quite famous in that region. Plenty of wind mills have been erected on the hillock which generate electricity for the grid. The patient is being assessed for IOL power for choosing suitable IOL for implanting during surgery. Implanting IOL frees the patient from wearing spectacles for good vision after surgery. We insert IOL for all the patients except a few on medical grounds. Those without IOL are provided with glasses.
