Roeun is an 82-year-old married woman who has three sons, three daughters, and twelve grandchildren. In her free time, she likes to go to the pagoda and listen to monks praying on the radio.
Three years ago, Roeun developed blurred vision and itchiness in both eyes, making it difficult for her to see things clearly or work. She and her daughter visited our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre.
Her doctors recommended that she undergo a surgical intervention to alleviate her symptoms. They proposed a small incision cataract surgery and an intraocular lens implant in each eye, which will replace her internal lenses with artificial lenses and restore her vision to full clarity. In total, the procedure, supplies, drugs, and three days of inpatient care will cost $292. Roeun’s procedure is scheduled for February 24.
