Oum is a 62-year-old retired military officer from Cambodia. He has four sons, three daughters, and three grandchildren. In his free time, he enjoys listening to the news on the radio.
One year ago, Oum developed a cataract in each eye, causing him blurry vision, tearing, and photophobia. He has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Oum learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, he traveled for three and a half hours seeking treatment. On January 15th, 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 $425 procedure.
“I hope that I will be able to see better than before and can return to my normal activities again,” he shared.
