Not every child helped by HKIE is a pre-planned appointment.
Silvio cut his eye open on a tin can.
His family took him to the public hospital, but the case was too difficult.
They were referred to Exilaser and Dra. Natalia Torres contacted us.
The tear duct was cut, and Dra. Naty had 24 hours to correct the problem before the baby would suffer lifelong damage to his tear production. She is one of very few pediatric eye doctors in Ecuador with the skill set she has.
Just a couple of hours after letting us know he needed help, he was all fixed up.
Thank you, Dra. Naty Torres and Exilaser our Allies for working with HKIE. Exilaser has dedicated its practice to having some of the best doctors and the best equipment in the world.
They have invested in lasers that aren't readily available anywhere else, that offer painless surgeries with little recovery time. Exilaser is such an asset to Ecuador and we are blessed to have them as part of our HKIE team.
