Leang underwent successful cataract surgery to improve his vision.
Leang’s surgery was a success! He and his wife traveled to visit our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, for his surgery. When he opened his eyes after surgery, he was astonished that his vision had improved so quickly. He will rest for a few days and apply eye drops to aid in healing. It may take several weeks for his eye to heal completely, but Leang is happy to see the faces of his grandchildren again. His life is enriched by watching them play and he will enjoy caring for them again when their parents are working.
Leang’s wife shared, “Leang is so much happier with better vision. He was afraid he would be in everyone’s way, and not be useful to the family. Now he is so happy he can see better, walk outside, and be more independent. Thank you to everyone who helped us.”

Leang is a 72-year-old bicycle repairman. He has two sons, two daughters, and seven grandchildren. He and his wife live with one of their daughters who works as a food seller in the local market. Unfortunately, Leang no longer repairs bicycles, due to his poor vision. Instead, he likes to listen to the news and funny stories on television.
Several years ago, Leang developed a cataract in his left eye, causing him blurry vision and sensitivity to light. He has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Leang learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, he traveled there hoping for treatment. On December 14th, doctors will perform small incision 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.
Leang shared, “I hope after my operation, I will be able to see the TV instead of just listening. I want to help my wife around the house, and play with my grandchildren.”
