Sok Heang is a vegetable farmer with three children and four grandchildren from Cambodia. She likes to read magazines and watch Thai TV dramas.
One year ago, Sok Heang developed a cataract in each eye, causing her blurred vision, burning, tearing, photophobia, and cloudy lenses. She has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Sok Heang learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, she traveled for one hour seeking treatment. On January 21, doctors will perform a phacoemulsification 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 my eye surgery is successful so I can see everything more clearly than now and so I can help my family.”
