Sron underwent successful cataract surgery to restore her vision.
Sron’s surgery was a success! She underwent cataract surgery at Children’s Surgical Centre’s care center. After surgeons determined she was stable, she was able to return to her village with prescription eye drops to use in the affected eye. When her eye patch was removed, she was thrilled with the results! She can see colors, recognize faces, and walk without the aid of a cane. She looks forward to going to her village pagoda and visiting with her family.
Sron’s sister shared, “we are relieved that Sron’s vision is better. She was not able to do anything at home, but now she can help around the house, and help care for the young children. Thank you for making her life better.”

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.”
