Ar Kar underwent a CT scan.

The scan showed that Ar Kay’s lacrimal glands, the gland that produces tears, is pushing against his eyes and has caused his eyes to increase in size. The doctor said that Ar Kar will need to receive surgery to get better, and have the glands removed.

Ar Kar is a 14-year-old boy from Burma. He lives with his parents, two brothers and sister in Htee Poe T’ Ray Village, Hlaingbwe Township, Karen State. In his free times, Ar Kar loves to play football with his friends.

Currently, Ar Kar’s eyes are sensitive to light, and bright lights hurt his eyes. He cannot see far, and he sometimes has a headache.

Doctors want Ar Kar to undergo a CT scan, a procedure in which x-ray images taken from several angles are combined to produce cross-sectional images of the body. This scan will hopefully help doctors diagnose his condition and formulate an appropriate treatment plan.

Our medical partner, Burma Children Medical Fund, is requesting $414 to cover the cost of Ar Kar’s CT scan and care, scheduled for April 24.

Ar Kar’s mother said, “I cannot work because I have to accompany him to the hospital and the clinic. I worry that he will not see like others if his condition does not improve. I want his eyes to be normal like other children.”
