Soeung is a 65-year-old woman from Cambodia. She is married and has three sons, five daughters, and ten grandchildren.
About a year ago, she developed a cataract in each eye, resulting in blurred vision, pain, tearing, and extreme sensitivity to light. This has made it difficult for Soeung to do any type of work or go anywhere on her own. She is very worried that she will go blind.
Soeung’s daughter had previously visited our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre (CSC). She accompanied her mother on the two-hour trip to receive treatment. Soeung is now scheduled to have a cataract surgery in both eyes on January 19. CSC is requesting $292 for this procedure.
After receiving an intraocular lens implant in each eye, Soeung will be able to see clearly again. She can resume her daily life and do all the things she loves.
