Sea is a 72-year-old grandfather from Cambodia. He is married and has one son, two daughters, and 14 grandchildren. He lives with his wife and his youngest daughter, who sells coffee and soft drinks from their house. He used to work as a fisherman, but stopped due to poor eyesight. When he is at home, he likes listening to the monks pray on the radio and watching boxing on television.
Three years ago, Sea developed a cataract in his right eye, causing him blurry vision. He has difficulty seeing things clearly, including colors and faces, and is worried about falling when walking, so he is not able to go places on his own.
When Sea learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, he traveled for an hour and a half seeking treatment. On November 14th, doctors will perform a small incision cataract surgery and an intraocular lens implant in his right eye. After recovery, he will be able to see clearly. Now, he needs help raising $253 to fund his procedure and care.
Sea shared, “I hope after surgery I can see better, go outside and recognize the faces of my family.”

Sea underwent cataract surgery to improve his vision.
For several years, Sea’s vision had worsened and he was unable to go fishing, which was his livelihood. This caused him to lose self-esteem because he could not be out on his boat and his wife had to help him when they traveled. He had successful surgery at CSC and was able to return home the following day. A week post-operatively, he is able to recognize faces from his affected eye and go outside without help. Improved eyesight is important to Sea so he can help support his children and grandchildren.
Sea’s daughter said: “I am so grateful to all the people who paid for my father to have surgery to improve his eyesight. He feels more useful and can do more with our family without fear that he will fall. Thank you to the hospital staff and donors for helping him.”
