Pho underwent eye surgery.
Pho’s surgery was quick and successful, and she has now regained sight in her left eye. Pho spent one night in the ward and has now returned to her village. At home, she will rest and apply antibiotic eye drops multiple times per day to prevent infection. Pho’s son is very happy she is able to see everything and everyone much more clearly than before. She is also happy she is able to return to her work and she can go anywhere outside that she wants without difficulty.
Pho shared, “I am so happy that my eyes can see everything clearly again, and now I can continue my work at the rice farm, do housework, and can go anywhere I want to by myself much more easily than before.”

Pho is a 65-year-old rice farmer from Cambodia. She is a mother of three, one son and two daughters, and she also has four grandchildren. When she is at home, she enjoys listening to the monks pray on the radio.
One year ago, Pho developed a cataract in her left eye, causing her vision loss and irritation. She has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Pho learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, she traveled for three and a half hours seeking treatment. On February 4th, doctors will perform a phacoemulsification cataract surgery and an intraocular lens implant in her left eye. After recovery, she will be able to see clearly. Now, she needs help to fund this $229 procedure.
“I hope that my mom will be able to see better so she can recognize things again.” -Pho’s son
