Seh is a 56-year-old rice farmer from Cambodia. She has five children, four grandchildren, and enjoys watching Khmer and Thai television dramas in her free time.
Ten years ago, Seh developed a cataract in each eye, causing her blurry vision, tearing, photophobia, and irritation. She has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Seh learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, she traveled for one and a half hours seeking treatment. On June 11, doctors will perform a phacoemulsification 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 see more clearly than before and can return to my family and friends.”
