Meet Seng, a 68-year-old man from Cambodia. Seng is married with three daughters. He enjoys reading Buddhist religious texts and visiting the pagoda to join in ceremonies. He traveled seven hours with his friend to reach CSC for treatment.
Seng developed a cataract in each eye four years ago. This causes him blurred vision, burning, and makes it difficult for him to get around easily on his own.
Cataracts typically occur in the elderly from age-related changes in the lens causing them to become cloudy. The cloudy lenses make it difficult to see, and can lead to blindness if gone untreated.
$225 covers the cost of a commonly practiced procedure to treat cataracts. Seng will receive surgery to remove his cloudy eye lenses and replace them with clear lens implants.
