Isha has been discharged from Sir Ganga Ram Hospital in Delhi after she regained partial vision in her injured left eye. She was admitted with a severely damaged left cornea and injuries in right eye.

“We performed a unique procedure called amniotic membrane transplantation in her left eye,which has helped bring back a substantial part of her eyesight. An amniotic membrane was obtained from a donor undergoing caesarean section who did not have communicable diseases and it was implanted in the victim’s eye,” said Dr A K Grover,head of Opthalmology.“

This has resulted in the vision of counting fingers at more than 3 metres. In the next weeks,there will be further improvement.”

Isha was also treated for burn injuries on her face,neck and chest. The cost of treatment was borne by the hospital.
