Question:
My grandmother had cataract surgery a month ago in India and now she has something called fungus infection in both eyes. Please suggest what can be done for my grandmother.

Answer:
Unfortunately fungal infections can be very difficult to treat. There are antifungals available and that is what they are probably giving her intraocularly and perhaps IV. The outcomes of such infections are often poor, so hope and pray for the best.
