Lav is a 42-year-old rice farmer from Cambodia. In his free time, he likes to watch Khmer dramas on television and listen to music.
Four months ago, Lav developed a cataract in each eye, causing him blurry vision and photophobia. He has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Lav learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, he traveled for seven and a half hours seeking treatment. On April 25, doctors will perform a phacoemulsification surgery and an intraocular lens implant in each eye. After recovery, he will be able to see clearly. Now, he needs help to fund this $398 procedure.
His wife says, “I hope that my husband will be able to see more clearly after his surgery so he can return to his work on the rice farm.”
