Leng, a 30-year-old mother from Cambodia, noticed something wrong with her vision about a year ago.
Diagnosed with strabismus, Leng suffers from a condition that causes one of her eyes to be physically misaligned. This impairment has hurt both Leng’s vision and confidence – she says it’s become hard to have conversation with anyone without feeling embarrassed by her eye.
An employee of a garment factory, Leng prides herself on her skills as a seamstress, and enjoys making clothes for herself and her family in her spare time.
Leng’s surgery, a procedure known as a squint correction, would cost $250. It would correct her impairment, restoring Leng’s sight and self-confidence.
