Shay Lee’s Journey to Vision Through Cornea Transplant Surgery

Field Report by Operation Blessing

SOUTH AFRICA – Shay Lee lives in the vibrant landscapes of South Africa, but her world was blurred by cornea problems. Despite her struggles with vision, Shay Lee’s story is one of hope, transformation, and the incredible impact of cornea transplant surgery.

Shay Lee’s Path to Clear Vision

Shay Lee’s blurred vision made daily tasks like reading and concentrating in school a challenge. Born with inherent cornea issues, Shay Lee and her devoted mother navigated through various treatments, ranging from eyedrops to gels. Nothing offered a lasting solution. Then they learned that Shay could have a cornea transplant and had hope.

However, in South Africa, donor corneas were scarce. After five long years on a waiting list, their hope faded. Then Operation Blessing stepped in with a solution that would change Shay Lee’s life forever.

Shay Lee didn’t have to wait long. Two weeks after her operation, her world came into focus. For the first time in her life, with glasses, she could see everything close up and far away. She couldn’t contain her joy. “Mommy, I have never seen so well before.” Her words resonated with gratitude. She had been given a most precious gift—the gift of sight!
