Pruonh is a government worker from Cambodia. He has one son and two grandchildren. He likes to listen to the radio and watch TV.
Two years ago, Pruonh developed a cataract in each eye, causing him blurry vision, tearing, potophobia, and cloudy lenses. He has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Pruonh learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, he traveled for half an hour seeking treatment. On December 12, doctors will perform a phacoemulsification surgery and an intraocular lens implant in each eye. After recovery, he will be able to see clearly. Now, he needs help to fund this $398 procedure.
He says, “I hope the surgery goes well so I can see clearly and recognize the faces of my grandchildren.”
