Ean is a 70-year-old rice and crop farmer from Cambodia. She is married with four sons and eight grandchildren. She enjoys watching the news on TV and going to the pagoda on holidays to listen to monks pray.
About a year ago, Ean developed a cataract in each eye. This causes her blurred vision, irritation, burning, cloudy lenses, and photophobia (extreme sensitivity to light). It is difficult for her to see things clearly, recognize faces, do any type of work, or go anywhere on her own.
On February 28, doctors at our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre (CSC), will perform cataract surgery in both her eyes. After the surgery, Ean will be able to see clearly again. CSC is requesting $292 to fund the surgery.
