Lim underwent cataract surgery.
Lim has returned home after a successful operation. As per her doctor’s instructions, she had one eye done, and will need to return in a few weeks to have surgery on the other eye. Surgery will allow her to work and go about her daily life with improved vision. Her doctor looks forward to seeing her again in a couple weeks.
She says, “I am very happy that I am able to see everything again. Now, I can go back to helping my family around the house with things like cleaning and taking care of the grandchildren. I am also able to go outside by myself without having to disturb anyone else, and no one will have to hold my hand when I want to go places, unlike before.”

Lim is a 72-year-old rice farmer from Cambodia. She has seven children and thirty grandchildren, and she enjoys listening to the monks pray on the radio in her free time.
One year ago, Lim developed a cataract in each eye, causing her blurry vision. She has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Lim learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, she traveled for three and a half hours seeking treatment. On March 18, doctors will perform a small incision cataract surgery and an intraocular lens implant in each eye. After recovery, she will be able to see clearly. Now, she needs help to fund this $398 procedure.
She says, “I hope that after my surgery, I am able to return to the pagoda and rejoin in the ceremonies, as well as take care of my grandchildren.”
