Lim is a 73-year-old rice farmer in Cambodia. She has three daughters, four sons and 30 grandchildren. In her free time, she enjoys going to the pagoda, participating in ceremonies, and listening to the monk’s prayers.
Five years ago, Lim developed a cataract in her right eye eye, causing her blurry vision. She has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going outside.
When Lim learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, she traveled for three and a half hours seeking treatment. On May 6th, doctors will perform phacoemulsification and an intraocular lens implant in her right eye eye. After recovery, she will be able to see clearly. Now, she needs help to fund this $229 procedure.
Lim’s husband says, “I saw my wife having eye pain, so I worry about her and I want to her to see better.”

Lim underwent cataract surgery.
Lim’s surgery was successful! Her doctors removed the cataract in her right eye that was causing her blurry vision and making it difficult for her to walk. She can now see clearly and go anywhere outside. She will also be able to see her three daughters, four sons, and 30 grandchildren. Her quality of life has improved significantly and she can now continue going to the pagoda. She was discharged from our medical partner’s care facility with eye drops and has been scheduled for a followup appointment at their clinic.
“I am delighted that my surgery went so well. I can see even better than before I developed the cataract. I will take time to play with my grandchildren and enjoy taking care of myself at home,” Lim shared.
Her husband also told Watsi, “I say thank you to the doctor and the medical team for helping my wife see clearly again. She is feeling happy and now she can do anything she wants.”
