Ros is a 67-year-old rice farmer who is married and has three sons, three daughters, and 15 grandchildren. In his free time, he likes to watch the news on TV, go to the pagoda to listen to monks pray, and participate in ceremonies.
About two years ago, Ros developed a cataract in each eye, which has caused him to experience blurred vision, extreme sensitivity to light, and cloudy lenses. As a result, it is difficult for him to see things and people clearly, work, drive his motorbike, and go anywhere on his own.
Our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, is requesting $398 to fund a phaco procedure and an intraocular lens implant for each of Ros’s eyes. The surgery is scheduled to take place on June 30 and, once completed, will hopefully restore Ros’s vision to its former state and allow him to live more comfortably.
