Wai underwent a lens replacement surgery.
Before her surgery, Wai suffered from pain in her left eye. She could not see clearly and would trip at night due to her poor vision. She felt stressed, depressed, and had little appetite when we first met her. She also felt uncomfortable because a white spot covered her left pupil. Since she received surgery, the vision in her left eye is good and she no longer has a white spot on her left pupil. She still experiences some pain in her left eye when she focuses on something for a longer period of time and our medical partner is following up closely with her to ensure she fully heals.
Wai shared: “I’m very glad to have had this great opportunity to receive treatment for my eye. I would like to say thank you to all who helped me. I was very sad when I could not use nail clippers to cut my children’s nails because I could not see properly. However, now my vision is clear and no longer blurry. Now I will be able to help take care of my family again. Thank you everyone.”

Wai is a 33-year-old homemaker from Thailand. She lives with her husband, son, and daughter on the border of Thailand. She is a homemaker, and her husband is a day laborer. Since Wai injured her left eye, her husband had to stop working to look after their children, since her son has a heart condition and her daughter has asthma.
Since a young boy accidentally shot her in the left eye with a slingshot, Wai’s left eye has been in pain. Her left pupil is covered by a white spot, and she also cannot see clearly. Wai feels stressed and depressed about her eye, and she has lost her appetite.
Our medical partner, Burma Children Medical Fund, is requesting $1,500 to fund a lens replacement surgery for Wai. On October 27th, doctors will perform a lens replacement, during which they will remove Wai’s natural lenses and replace them with an intraocular lens implant. After recovery, she will be able to see clearly. Now, she needs help to fund this $1,500 procedure.
Wai shared, “I will try to be a good mother and make sure my children receive an education because I do not want my children to be uneducated like me. If I get better, I will always bring and pick up my children from school. I will look after them full time so that my husband can go back to work and save money.”
