Since lockdown and the pandemic as a whole had not just interrupted but stopped the treatment of eye patients altogether
Prioritizing COVID19 safety guidelines was a must as the filming was supposed to take place at a hospital. Dr. Ruit requested us to get tested prior to filming. He instructed us to get the tests done five days before filming inside the operation theatre. Since lockdown and the pandemic as a whole had not just interrupted but stopped the treatment of eye patients altogether, the hospital was now packed with a large number of patients from all over the country post-lockdown. It was challenging to work through the crowd whilst not losing sight of the safety measures.
The timing was of the essence as Dr. Ruit had to follow a strict routine to be able to operate. Travel time was a major concern as traffic delays happen to be one of the downsides of the city.
