“One month ago a bird bit Theary’s left eye and caused a traumatic cataract,” our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre (CSC), shares. Theary, a four-year-old boy from Cambodia, has been unable to attend school since the incident. He also experiences pain and irritation in his eye.
For $150, Theary will receive surgery to replace his cloudy left eye lens with a clear lens implant. His vision will be completely restored after the procedure.
As a young, active boy, Theary enjoys playing with his toy cars and with his older sister. His mother is hopeful that after the surgery she will no longer have to worry about his eye having other issues.
“I hope my son can see everything clearly again, so he can go back to school and play with his sister and friends like before,” Theary’s mother shares.
