Sron is a 69-year-old retired farmer. She’s single and has three siblings who also live in her village. She lives with her younger sister, who also works as a farmer. Because she is older, she no longer goes to the rice field, and instead likes to stay home and listen to the radio.
Three years ago, Sron developed a cataract in her left eye, causing her tearing and blurry vision, and making it difficult for her to go out in the sunlight or in the evening. She has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Sron learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, she traveled for four hours seeking treatment. On December 9th, doctors will perform small incision cataract surgery and an intraocular lens implant in her left eye. After recovery, she will be able to see clearly. Now, she needs help to fund this $229 procedure.
Sron shared, “I hope I can see better. I want to be able to walk without falling and help to take care of my grandchildren.”
