Yan is an 82-year-old man from Cambodia. He is married with one daughter and eleven grandchildren. He likes to listen to monks pray on the radio and read books on Buddhism.
About two years ago, Yan developed cataracts in each of his eyes, causing him partial blindness, tearing, and cloudy lenses. Because of his eye condition, he has difficulty seeing clearly, which impacts his independence and ability to do work.
Yan learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre (CSC), from his neighbor. He traveled for three hours with his grandson to reach CSC for treatment. On March 27, Yan will undergo small incision cataract surgery (SICS) and intraocular lens implantation in each eye. After recovery, Yan will be able to see clearly again. CSC is requesting $292 to fund this procedure.
