Tes is 72 years old and has two daughters and four grandchildren. She likes to play cards, listen to monks pray at the pagoda, and watch the news, sports, and dramas on TV.
Two years ago, Tes developed a pterygium in each eye, causing her blurred vision and tearing. It became difficult for her to see things clearly, work, and go anywhere on her own.
Tes traveled for one hour with her niece to reach our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre (CSC), for treatment. On December 23, eye surgeons at CSC removed the pterygium from each eye to allow Tes to see clearly again. Now, CSC is requesting $148 to fund this procedure.
“I hope I look better and feel more comfortable,” says Tes, “so that I can do any work easily and watch TV well. I also want to be able to go anywhere by myself.”
