The doctor said: “Inflammation of the back wall of the eyes, retinal detachment, fluid passage, 70% of your central vision is gone, you are going blind, Sergei. Time goes by for days! “. There is no necessary equipment and appropriate preparation for this operation in Ukraine! In the CIS countries, neither. A clinic was found in Austria, which agreed to accept me. Now we are organizing the trip, and this is, during quarantine time, how difficult it is! The operation is scheduled for February 5th. Now all that remains is to successfully get to Vienna and bypass the ten-day quarantine since my eyesight does not give me much time, ”said the performer.
