Hoeun underwent sight-restoring eye surgery.
Hoeun was happy that a neighbor in his village recommended he go to Children’s Surgical Centre for his declining vision. After losing much of the vision in his right eye, it had become difficult for him to work outside. Surgery was successful and he will be able to see clearly again. He rested for several days and used prescription eye drops to make sure his eye healed properly. His eye will heal quickly but will be sensitive for a short time. When Hoen peeked through the eye patch, his vision had already improved. His life will improve because he can return to recycling to support his family and not worry about falling when he is outside.
Hoeun said, “It will be easier for me to work outside around the city when I see better. My eyesight has improved so I can be useful and support our family. Thank you to the people who paid for me to have this surgery so I can see well again. “

Hoeun is a 55-year-old hardworking father. He is married with four sons, four daughters, and two grandchildren. Hoeun recycles aluminum cans and his wife takes care of their home. Hoeun likes to watch the news on TV and listen to monks pray on the radio.
Six months ago, Hoeun developed a cataract in his right eye, causing him photophobia, tearing, and blurry vision. It has been difficult for him to work outside, so he has stopped. Houen’s children are currently supporting him.
When Hoeun learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre (CSC), he traveled for one hour seeking treatment. On September 6th, 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, CSC is helping Hoeun raise $253 to fund this procedure.
Hoeun shared, “I hope after surgery I can see better and easily go outside. I hope to start working again to support my living.”
