Ry is a 62-year-old carpenter from Cambodia. He has one son and two daughters. In his free time he watches the news on his phone.
Five months ago, Ry developed a cataract in his left eye, causing him blurry vision, pain, and hard to recognize something. He has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Ry learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, he traveled for one hour seeking treatment. On April 27th, doctors will perform a phacoemulsification cataract surgery and an intraocular lens implant in his left eye. After recovery, he will be able to see clearly. Now, he needs help to fund this $229 procedure.
Ry said, “I hope my eye pain and poor vision will improve so I can work as a carpenter again.”
