Chhot underwent cataract surgery to restore his vision.
Chhot was reluctant to admit he needed help, but could no longer visit places on his own. After his surgery, he was grateful for the improvement in his vision. His life will be better, because he can now recognize the faces of his family, and he can walk faster and get around on his own. He looks forward to visiting the local pagoda and helping his grandchildren with their homework.
Chhot’s wife said: “I am relieved Chhot can help around the house and take care of the grandchildren. He has more confidence when he goes out and is happier. Thank you to the CSC staff for operating on my husband so he can enjoy his life.”

Chhot is a 73-year-old retired teacher. He has three sons, five daughters, and many grandchildren. Chhot lives with his wife and their youngest daughter who is a garment worker. Now he stays at home to look after his grandchildren. Chhot likes to listen to the news and the monks praying on the radio.
Three years ago, Chhot developed a cataract in his left eye, causing him blurry vision and photophobia. He has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Chhot learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, he traveled for seven hours seeking treatment. On November 23rd, doctors will perform a phacoemulsification cataract surgery and will place an intraocular lens implant in his left eye. After recovery, Chhot will be able to see clearly. Now, he needs help to fund this $229 procedure.
Chhot says, “I hope my eye can see clearly so I can teach my grandchildren to read and write well.”
