Despite the fact that hundreds of doctors from various countries have been brought in for surgery or examinations. However, the Iraqi doctor has a clear mark in most operations or surgical interventions in the al-Kafeel Super Speciality Hospital at the al-Abbas's (p) Holy Shrine. Most of these operations have been successful, including the last operation that was done by an Iraqi medical team that was able to help a young man to see after that he was blind from birth until he is now 28 years old.
The head of the medical team and the specialist of eye surgery at the al-Kafeel hospital; Dr. Salam al-Gar'awi, stated: "The medical team under our leadership, succeeded in conducting an iris artificial implant for the eye of a Karbala'i young man of (28) years, who was blind due to deformity in both eyes and the absence of iris with the presence of white water in them."
"As a result of this, the patient has difficulty opening the eye in the bright places or outside the room, as a result of the absence of iris which protects the eye from excessive light and strong sunlight, and thus light enters the eye through the pupil."
Explaining: "the surgery was performed under local anaesthesia and took less than an hour, during which we implanted the iris to one of the young man's eyes. And we will perform a second operation for the other eye. The patient recovered his eyesight and returned to his normal life after days of the surgery."
