Touch is an 53-year-old nurse with one son and three daughters. Touch used to work as a volunteer nurse in a health center but retired after her husband passed away. She enjoys listening to the news and the monks praying on the radio.
Five years ago, Touch developed a cataract in her right eye, causing her photophobia, blurry vision, and itchiness. She has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
Surgeons at Children’s Surgical Centre will perform a phacoemulsification cataract surgery and implant an intraocular lens in her right eye. After recovery, she will be able to see clearly and perform daily activities again.
Touch said, “I hope after surgery I can see better so I can help my daughter cook, do housework, and take care of myself well.”
