Imagine losing your sight. It’s a highly emotional experience, even if the blindness is not trauma-related. With your vision gradually declining due to cataracts or other eye conditions, you’d feel sorrow, uncertainty and anxiety about the future. You’d naturally be apprehensive about eye surgery, yet eager for the possibility to be able to see again.

Now you can join one woman as she follows this same emotional journey. Watch the following video photo essay to see a Kenyan grandmother as she travels from the security of her family farm to a local hospital for cataract surgery.
