Oeun is a 75-year-old man from Cambodia who is “married with four sons, three daughters, and 13 grandchildren.” He assists his daughter in taking care of her children, and “he enjoys visiting the pagoda in his free time to listen to the monks pray.” Four months ago, “Oeun developed a cataract in each eye,” explains Children’s Surgical Centre (CSC), our medical partner in Cambodia. “This causes him blurred vision, tearing, burning, and cloudy lenses.” Oeun shares, “It is hard for me to see everything clearly, do any work, or go anywhere by myself.” He wishes to restore his vision to its previous quality, stating, “I hope my eyes can see everything clearer than now so I can help my daughter take care of her children at home and I can easily do any work better than before. I want to be able to go walking anywhere outside too.” For $225, Oeun will receive Small Incision Cataract Surgery (SICS) and an Intraocular Lens (IOL) in each eye at the Kien Khleang National Rehabilitation Centre. During this procedure, doctors will break apart and remove the cloudy lenses and replace them with artificial implants. CSC shares, “After a SICS and IOL implant in each eye, Oeun will be able to see clearly again.” Oeun’s daughter wishes for an improvement in his eyesight so that he can return to his daily activities free from hampered vision. She states, “I hope my father can see everything clearly as normal again so he can easily do any work and go somewhere that he wishes to by himself. I hope I won’t have to worry about his eyes losing vision anymore.”
