Khoun is an 81-year-old grandmother living in Cambodia. She is married with three sons, three daughters, and 20 grandchildren. She enjoys visiting the pagoda to join in ceremonies and prayers. Khoun traveled 2 hours with her daughter to reach CSC for treatment.
About one year ago, Khoun started having blurred vision and tearing from both eyes, and became unable to travel independently with her vision impairment. She visited our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre (CSC), and was found with a cataract in each eye.
Her doctors at CSC recommended she have surgery to resolve her vision impairment and restore clarity. They would perform an extracapsular cataract extraction and an intraocular lens implant in each eye, which will replace her internal ocular lenses. In total, the procedure, supplies, drugs, and three days of inpatient care will cost $225.
Following her surgery, Khoun will have restored vision and her discomfort will be resolved. She will also have her independence again, and will be able to visit the pagoda on her own.
