When the Cypriot Elder Chrysostomos Katounakiotis (1920 - 2005) had a serious eye problem and was about to go blind, instead of visiting a doctor to receive examination and treatment, he went to the Holy Iveron Monastery where he prayed in front of the miraculous icon of Panagia Portaitissa. Then, at the suggestion of practicing monks, he instilled drops of lemon in his eyes. After prayer and the practical treatment, he completely regained his light.
From the book of the monk Philip, "Elder of the desert of Mount Athos".
