Caption: Eye surgery. Patient's eye being injected with a paralysing agent prior to eye surgery. This patient is being treated in a remote rural region of Kenya, and no local or general anaesthetics are available. Common and debilitating eye conditions in this area include cataracts and trachoma infections, both of which can lead to blindness if not treated. Photographed as part of work by the UK charity MEAK (Medical and Educational Aid to Kenya).
