Nak is a 41-year-old rice farmer from Cambodia who is married with one son. He likes to watch Khmer dramas on TV and listen to the news on the radio. Nak heard about Children’s Surgical Centre (CSC) from a person in his village who had surgery here before. He traveled for four hours with his son to reach CSC for treatment.
Nak developed a cataract in each eye about three months ago, causing him blurred vision that is slowly worsening. It is difficult for him to see things clearly, do any work, and go anywhere on his own.
For $292, Nak will undergo cataract surgery on both eyes. After surgery, Nak will be able to see clearly again.
Nak says, “I hope that I can see everything more clear than now so that I can continue my work as a farmer again, do any work easily, and go anywhere outside.”
Nak’s son says, “I hope my father can see everything more clear than now so that I don’t have to worry about his vision loss anymore.”
