Ravy underwent cataract surgery.
Ravy’s surgery went well and she stayed in the hospital ward for one night before returning home. She was given eye drops and an ointment to reduce pain and prevent infection, which she will need to apply six times a day. Thanks to the surgery, she has been able to return to work on her family farm and in her daily life with improved vision and without discomfort and irritation. Her daughter is relieved that her mom’s operation was successful and she is so thankful that she was able to receive the treatment from CSC.
After the surgery, Ravy told us, “I feel very good that I can see better, I can go outside more and do things with my family.”

Ravy is a 61-year-old rice farmer from Cambodia. She has two sons, three daughters, and many grandchildren. Ravy’s husband is a driver. She enjoys listening to the monks praying on the radio and at the pagoda.
Two years ago, Ravy developed a cataract, causing her itchiness, tearing, and blurry vision. She has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces of her family and friends, and going places independently.
When Ravy learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, she traveled there with her daughter seeking treatment. On December 16th, doctors will perform a phacoemulsification cataract surgery and an intraocular lens implant in her both eye. After recovery, she will be able to see clearly. Now, she needs help to fund this $229 procedure.
Ravy said, “I want to see clearly again so I can help my daughter at home and get around outside by myself.”
