Horn is an older woman from Cambodia with two sons, three daughters, and twelve grandchildren. Now she lives with her daughter and sells food in front of the school to earn a small living. he also enjoys listening to the monks pray.
Five years ago, Horn developed a cataract in her left eye, causing her blurry vision, tearing, eye irritation, cloudy lens, and photophobia. She has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Horn learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, she traveled for four and a half hours with her daughter seeking treatment. On October 12th, doctors will perform small incision cataract surgery (SICS) and an intraocular lens implant in her left eye. After recovery, she will be able to see clearly. Now, she needs help to fund this $229 procedure.
Horn said, “I hope after surgery my eye can see everything clearer than now so I can recognize the faces of my family and get around easily on my own.”
