A 60-year-old man named Mr John Kofi Sackey, aka Odopee, has been confirmed to have discovered a cure for blindness and other 'incurable' eye conditions.
Graphic.com.gh compiled the full report after personally visiting the facility and witnessing how patients have been receiving treatment.
Mr Sackey's facility is called the Odopee Herbal Research and Learning Centre at Mankessim and is located at Mankessim, a commercial town in the Central Region.
The facility is known to have been running for several years with all legal issues fully satisfied. Mr Sackey is reported to have procured more than 30 licences, certificates, testimonials, citations and recommendations from recognised institutions.

Reports indicate that over 300 people have been cured of eye conditions that are medically 'incurable'. Cataract, glaucoma, inflammation of the eye, itching, short and long-sightedness have all been part of the list.
Orthodox solutions to similar eye conditions involve surgery or sometimes medication that is applied to the eye. Mr Sackey's herbs follow none.
Rather, the herbalist pours the liquid preparation onto a piece of dry wood, puts the wood in a small plastic container for the patient to watch with widely opened eyes for 10 minutes.
After exposing the eyes to the invisible 'rays' of the drug, the patients are made to walk for some time. They rest for two or three hours and resume the treatment.
Many of the patients have been reported to receive their sight on the first day of the treatment.

Mr Sackey has practised herbal medicine for 46 years, taking over from his late father who practised the profession for 70 years.

It is also worthy of note that the treatment for blindness is free. Mr Sackey revealed that blind people have limited means due to their condition, for which reason he offers the service to them without any charges.
