Disability Visually Impaired
Malewezi is a 15-year-old boy who is visually impaired. He lives with his parents and siblings and is going to school where he does well, usually position 3 or 4 in class. Malewezi began experiencing problems when he was 4-years old and got an eye infection.
According to his mother, the medication he was given caused his eye to close and it was like that for a long time. When his eye opened again, they noticed that he had developed cataracts in that eye. He continues to get frequent eye infections and his other eye has poor vision as well. Malewezi needs to have an eye exam for prescription eyeglasses.
