Sary underwent a cataract surgery.
Sary traveled four hours to have her cataract removed by Watsi’s partner CSC surgeons. After her surgery, she needed to use eye drops to decrease inflammation and the risk of infection.
She couldn’t believe she began to see better almost immediately. Sary will now be able to return to her province to farm rice with her husband and family. The surgery has brought great relief to her now that she can see more clearly, and she said she is happy to be able to do more of what she likes, including her favorite recreation of watching Khmer dramas on TV!
“I am very happy that I can see better, do more, and can take care of my family.” she told us after surgery.

Sary is a 55-year-old farmer from Cambodia. She is married and has two sons, one daughter, and two grandchildren. Her husband is also a farmer. Sary enjoys watching Khmer dramas on TV.
One year ago, Sary developed a cataract in her left eye, causing her tearing, itchiness, and photophobia. She has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Sary learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, she traveled for four hours by taxi with her husband seeking treatment. On November 11th, doctors will perform a small incision cataract surgery and place an intraocular lens implant in her left eye. After recovery, she will be able to see clearly. Now, she needs help to fund this $229 procedure.
Sary shared, “If I can see well, it will bring happiness to me and my family.”
