Soknov is a 68-year-old married farmer with a daughter and three grandchildren. She likes to join ceremonies at the pagoda in her free time. Soknov heard about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre (CSC), from her neighbor. She traveled for three hours with her daughter to reach CSC for treatment.
Soknov developed a cataract in each eye about two years ago, causing her blurred vision, tearing, cloudy lenses, and photophobia. It is difficult for Soknov to see things clearly.
On April 5, Soknov will undergo surgery at Kien Khleang National Rehabilitation Centre, CSC’s care center. CSC is requesting $292 to fund her treatment. After a phacoemulsification procedure and intraocular lens implant in each eye, Soknov will be able to see things clearly again.
