Khan is a 56-year-old rice farmer from Cambodia. She has two grandchildren and enjoys listening to the news on the radio.
Three years ago, Khan developed a cataract in each eye, causing her blurry vision, itchiness, tearing, irritation, and cloudy lenses. She has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Khan learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, she traveled for three and a half hours seeking treatment. On March 14, doctors will perform small incision cataract surgery and an intraocular lens implant in each eye. After recovery, she will be able to see clearly. Now, she needs help to fund this $398 procedure.
Her daughter says, “I hope my mother’s surgery is successful and I hope that she is able to see everything more clearly now. This way, she will easily be able to do her work and go anywhere outside by herself.”
