Lan is a 64-year-old fisherman. He has three sons, five daughters, and many grandchildren. Lan lives with his wife who is a farmer.
Three years ago, Lan developed a cataract in his right eye, causing him photophobia, itchiness, tearing, and blurry vision. Now he has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Lan learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, he traveled for three hours seeking treatment. On October 25th, doctors will perform a phacoemulsification cataract surgery and an intraocular lens implant in his right eye. After recovery, he will be able to see clearly. Now, he needs help to fund this $229 procedure.
Lan say, “I want my eye to see clearly so I can go fishing again and help my wife at the rice field.”
