San underwent cataract surgery so she can see clearly.
San was hesitant to admit her eyesight was failing, but living alone had become difficult for her. She was happy to take the advice of a relative and explore if surgery was possible for her. And with your help, it was! San was overjoyed when she was able to open her eye and see the improvement. Her eyesight will continue to slowly improve over the next few weeks. San can now recognize the faces of her family and feels more confident walking outside. Her life will be better because she has newfound independence.
San said: “I am grateful to the staff and the people who have made my life easier now that I can see better. I look forward to visiting my family frequently now that I am not afraid to walk outside by myself. Thank you for helping me see better so I can feel more useful to my family, even at my age.”

Two years ago, San developed a cataract in her right eye, causing her tearing and blurry vision. As a result, she has difficulty seeing things clearly, including colors and faces, and is worried about falling when walking, so she doesn’t go many places on her own anymore.
When San learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre (CSC), she traveled for three and a half hours seeking treatment. On April 21st, doctors will perform cataract surgery and an intraocular lens implant in her right eye. After recovery, she will be able to see clearly. CSC is requesting $253 to help fund this procedure.
San says, “After surgery, I hope my vision improves so I can visit the pagoda by myself.”
