What price would you put on a kid's 'miracle'?
WHAT price would you put on your kids' eyesight?
If you could give someone their vision back for $32, would you do it?
Most Australians wouldn't think twice.
The day is an initiative of CBM Australia, a charity which is helping people in Vietnam and other countries to have life-changing cataract surgery.
The stories of those who have been helped are pretty powerful.
Like that of nine-year-old Quin whose life was turned upside down when playing with sticks.
He was trying to cut through a stick when it flicked up into his eyes, a story on the CBM Australia website says.
His parents were home but not wanting to tell them what happened, Quin tried to hide the problem.
His parents soon recognised something was wrong. Noticing that one of his eyes looked different, they took him to the local hospital. Quin later admitted he had blurry vision in the affected eye.
Luckily, Quin's district hospital had a trained eye specialist.
CBM Australia had supported one of the local doctors to receive the necessary training.
A nurse and two support staff were also trained, forming a specialist eye care team in Quin's area. CBM also ensured the hospital had the equipment needed to see eye conditions properly for the treatment eye conditions.
Once at the hospital, the doctor - Dr Nhan - diagnosed Quin as having a cataract, caused by trauma to the eye, and praised his parents for bringing him in quickly before infection set in.
"Without early intervention [it wouldn't be long before] infection would happen and it would affect other parts of the eye," Dr Nhan said.
"It was a very dangerous and complicated case."
Arrangements were then made for Quin to go to a larger provincial hospital for the surgery.
Quin's mother Lan was naturally concerned for her son.
"When he [had] the accident I was very worried. I was worried about his future, how he would work at school if he lost his eye. When the doctor said that Quin needed to have the surgery I was very concerned. I could not eat or sleep for one week. I just cried for one week."
Quin received the surgery needed to remove the cataract in his eye. As with all successful cataract surgeries, Quin's eyesight is expected to continue to improve in the months following his operation.
He and his mother continue to meet with Dr Nhan to assess improvements to his condition.
"Now I feel much better, now he has had his operation ... I take him for follow-up appointments every two to three months," his mother said.
As of Thursday morning, more than 5600 have pledged to create more miracles like Quin across Australia.
