Meet Srey, a 55-year-old woman from Cambodia. “Srey developed a cataract in each eye five years ago,” Our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre (CSC), explains, “This causes her blurred vision, tearing, irritation, and she is afraid of sunshine. She can’t see everything clearly, do work well, or go outside alone.”
In her free time, Srey enjoys listening to the monks pray and visiting relatives around her village.
$225 will cover the cost of a small incision cataract surgery and an intraocular implant in each eye to replace the clouded eye lens with a clear implant. “After the surgery, Srey will be able to see clearly again,” CSC shares.
“I hope my eyes can see everything more clearly than now,” Srey shares, “So I can help my sister feed our cows, pigs, and chickens at home and so I can easily go outside by myself.”
