Three-month-old Len is the only child in his family. He and his parents live in Cambodia.
Len was born with a congenital cataract in each eye, which causes his lenses to be cloudy and he has poor vision. He traveled two hours with his parents to reach Watsi’s medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre (CSC), after a doctor at another hospital sent him here.
Eye doctors at CSC will perform a lens aspiration surgery to remove the clouded lens from each eye and prevent him from going blind. The treatment and surgery costs $292 and covers all of Len’s medical expenses. When he is a few years older, he will return to have an IOL implant in each eye.
