Mom is a 53-year-old woman from Cambodia. She enjoys talking with her neighbors and doing work around her home. She is married with two sons, two daughters, and three grandchildren.
“Mom developed a cataract in each eye 5 months ago,” shares our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre (CSC). “This causes her blurred vision, itchiness, irritation, cloudy lenses, and she is afraid of sunshine.”
Mom is unable to see clearly, work, or go anywhere outside on her own. For $225 Mom will receive a surgery to remove the clouded lenses in her eyes and replace them with clear implants. Mom will be able to see clearly again within the day.
“I hope I will see clearly again,” shares Mom about her hopes after surgery. And with cleared vision, Mom adds: “I can make Khmer cake, sell fruit at home to earn some money to support my family, and easily go anywhere outside.”
