Chron is a 58-year-old rice farmer. He has two daughters, three sons, and three grandchildren. Chron lives with his wife who is also a farmer and their youngest daughter who is in school. Chron also goes fishing at times to earn extra income for their family.
Three years ago, Chron developed a cataract in his left eye, causing him blurry vision, photophobia, and itchiness. He has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and now going places outside.
When Chron learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, he traveled for three and a half hours seeking treatment. On October 27th, doctors will perform a phacoemulsification cataract surgery and will place an intraocular lens implant in his left eye. After recovery, he will be able to see clearly. Now, he needs help to fund this $229 procedure.
Chron says, “I hope my eye can see clearly after surgery so I can go back to the rice field to help my wife and go fishing again.”
