Chom Rong is a 45-year-old police officer from Cambodia. He has three sons, one daughter, and enjoys watching soccer and Khmer boxing on television in his free time.
Five months ago, Chom Rong developed a cataract in each eye, causing him photophobia, tearing, itchiness, and blurry vision. He has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Chom Rong learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, he traveled for a half hour seeking treatment. On June 12, doctors will perform a phacoemulsification cataract surgery and an intraocular lens implant in each eye. After recovery, he will be able to see clearly. Now, he needs help to fund this $398 procedure.
He says, “I hope that after my surgery I will be able to see clearly and can go back to work.”
