Phan underwent cataract surgery.
Phan’s surgery was successful! Her doctors removed the cataract in her right eye that was causing her blurry vision and making it difficult for her to walk. She can now see clearly and go anywhere outside. She will also be able to see her daughter, five sons, and sixteen grandchildren. Her quality of life has improved significantly and she can now help her daughter sell groceries at the market. She was discharged from our medical partner’s care facility with eye drops and a followup appointment has been scheduled for her at their clinic.
Her son shared, “I do not worry about my mom’s sight anymore. She can recognize everything around her clearly. She can do anything she likes now, including selling groceries at the market.”

Phan is a 76-year-old rice farmer from Cambodia. She has one daughter, five sons, and sixteen grandchildren. Phan spends most of her time helping her daughter sell groceries at the market. In her free time Phan enjoys listening to the news on the radio and joining ceremonies at her local pagoda.
Two months ago, Phan developed a cataract in her right eye, causing her itchiness, tearing, and blurry vision. She has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Phan learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, she traveled for four and a half hours seeking treatment. On May 4th, doctors will perform a small incision cataract surgery and an intraocular lens implant in her right eye. After recovery, she will be able to see clearly. Now, she needs help to fund this $229 procedure.
“I hope that I can go to the market with my daughter and that I can go to the pagoda by myself in the future,” Phan shared.
