Rorn is a 57-year-old corn and potato farmer from Cambodia. She is married with one son, three daughters, and seven grandchildren. Rorn likes to watch Khmer dramas on TV and listen to monks pray at the pagoda. She heard about Children’s Surgical Centre (CSC) from a neighbor who had surgery here before. Rorn traveled for three hours with her grandson to reach CSC for treatment.
Rorn developed a cataract in each eye about two years ago causing her blurred vision and photophobia (extreme sensitivity to light). It is difficult for her to see things clearly and do any work outside.
For $292, Rorn will undergo cataract surgery in both eyes. After surgery, Rorn will be able to see clearly again.

Rorn successfully received surgery to see clearly again.
Rorn’s eye cataract was successfully removed from her right eye and clear vision has been restored. Following the operation, she was given eye drops to reduce inflammation and fight infection. Rorn went home after the first surgery and has yet to return to have the same operation completed in the other eye. Because returning to the clinic requires taking a day off from work and usually a family escort, she may have had trouble finding a day to come back. Also, because she left with clear vision in one eye, her problems with blurred vision are less of a burden making the second surgery a less immediate priority than the first. The second surgery will be free whenever Rorn returns.
“I am very happy that my grandmother can see clearly,” shares Rorn’s granddaughter. “I am thankful.”
