Aylito lives in Ethiopia and has been blind in one eye since the age of six. Trichiasis—a painful eye condition—threatened her sight in the other. Unaware of available treatment options, Aylito lived with the impending possibility of losing her eyesight and the fear of not being able to take care of her family for a year.

Through Orbis’s eye health outreach programs in Ethiopia, she was finally able to take the necessary steps to transform her life—one in which she could confidently support herself and her family.
