Chheut is a 62-year-old home renovator and his wife sells groceries. They have two daughters, five sons, and eight grandchildren. Chheut likes to listen to the radio at home.
Chheut has developed a cataract in his right eye, causing him blurry vision, photophobia, and tearing. He has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Chheut learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, he traveled there with his daughter seeking treatment. On December 24th, doctors will perform a phacoemulsification cataract surgery and an intraocular lens implant in his right eye. After recovery, he will be able to see clearly. Now, he needs help to fund this $229 procedure.
Chheut said, “I hope after surgery I can see clear again so I can go outside by myself and help my wife sell her groceries.”
