Sudi Harto, 57 years old was a former village chief, he was also a former chief of the school he is teaching. All those titles were gone when his vision was reduced to 1-2 metres. He has been a primary school teacher for 34 years.
With little vision, he was demoted to teaching classes considered not important, e.g. gardening, exercise, Javanese language. He photocopied all his textbooks to extra large size, to help him read.
If Sudi Harto’s cataracts were not removed now, he would have lost all his vision within a few months and lost his teaching job completely.
