Tam is a 73-year-old woman who is married with two sons, five daughters, and 20 grandchildren. She enjoys visiting the pagoda to listen the monks pray in her spare time.

Three years ago, Tam developed entropion on both eyes. This causes her eyelids to turn inward so that the eyelashes scrape the surface of her eye.

Tam experiences blurred vision, itchiness, tearing, and irritation. She can’t open her eyes fully, and always feels uncomfortable.

She has traveled for three hours with her daughter-in-law to reach Watsi’s medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre (CSC), for treatment. Tam will undergo an upper eyelid correction surgery on both eyes, which will relieve her of the irritations caused by entropion.

The surgery will cost $290. After treatment, Tam will be able to easily see and open/close her eyes again without discomfort.
