Yeat’s surgeries were successful.

Yeat’s doctor at Children’s Surgical Centre writes, “Yeat is so happy that after two successful surgeries to remove her cataracts her vision has been restored! She is excited to return home to working on the rice farm and being able to take care of her grandchildren. Yeat is also happy that she can go to the market, pagoda, and visit family on her own.”

This is Yeat. She’s 68-years-old, mother to five, and grandmother to ten. “Yeat’s vision was partially restored - thanks to a successful cataract surgery funded by Watsi donors last week - but her vision remained blurred because of the hypermature cataract remaining on her left eye,” Children’s Surgical Centre (CSC) tells us. “She continues has problems working on the rice farm and cannot see clearly to watch TV or read.”

With $150 CSC clinicians will be able to move the cataract from Yeat’s left eye, too. “She misses reading the most and looks forward to returning to work on the rice farm once her vision is restored,” CSC writes about Yeat.

Let’s help Yeat see clearly again!
