Man is a 59-year-old grocery seller. He and his wife have one daughter, four sons, and ten grandchildren. In his free time, Man enjoys listening to the news on his phone.
One year ago, Man developed a cataract in his left eye, causing him photophobia and blurry vision. As a result, he has difficulty seeing things clearly, including colors and faces, and is worried about falling when walking, so he cannot go places independently.
When Man learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre (CSC), he traveled for six and half hours seeking treatment. On April 22nd, doctors will perform cataract surgery and an intraocular lens implant in his left eye. After recovery, he will be able to see clearly. CSC is requesting $253 to fund this procedure.
Man says, “After surgery, I hope I can see clearly again so I can sell my groceries well.”

Man underwent sight-restoring cataract surgery.
Man had been troubled by his diminishing eyesight. He could not see the currency numbers on the Cambodian bills and was often embarrassed when making change. He had successful surgery and was able to make the long trip home the following day. He rested at home for several days and has now returned to work. This is important because Man is the main breadwinner in his family, and he feels confident he can support his family with his improved eyesight.
Man’s wife said: “we are grateful we were able to travel to have Man’s surgery so he can see better. He can go outside in bright and dim light and can read more clearly. Thank you to everyone who were so kind to us.”
