70-year-old Rorn has seven children and ten grandchildren, and lives with his family in Cambodia. Recently, he developed a cataract in each eye. This causes him blurred vision. He can’t see clearly, do work well, or go anywhere outside on his own.
For $225, we can fund the two-part surgery that will correct his cataracts. First, doctors will make a small incision in both of Rorn’s eyes, and remove the clouded lens from each. Then, they will insert artificial replacement lenses that will function just as Rorn’s undamaged lenses used to. “After receiving this surgery and an implant in each eye, Rorn will have improved vision,” his medical team explains.
Rorn looks forward to returning to his normal routines of working and spending time with his family without discomfort. “I hope I’ll be able to see everything clearer than I do now, so I can continue my work with rubber again can go outside on my own,” he shares.
