He has Strabisimus ("lazy eye") in both his eyes, making it virtually impossible to focus on anything. HKIE was able to get several tests performed on Tupac's eyes and procure a pair of glasses for him.
As you can see by the photo of him with his new glasses, we imagine he is thinking "Wow! What a world!"
The eye surgeon wants Tupac to wear his new glasses for 3 months to see if his condition improves enough to be able to avoid having two eye surgeries.
Thank you to our HKIE supporters and Hospital Metropolitano in Quito!
A special thank you goes out to Cynthia Lopez from Cotacachi for bringing Tupac to our attention and for coordinating his appointments and driving the family to the hospital.
Cynthia tells us the family was so appreciative that the medical staff treated them with the upmost respect and kindness while they were treating Tupac.
We will keep everyone updated on his progress.
