Soeun is a 45-year-old construction worker from Cambodia. She has one son, two daughters, and enjoys listening to the news on the radio in her free time.
Two months ago, Soeun developed a pterygium in her right eye, causing her blurry vision and photophobia. She has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, working, and going anywhere outside.
When Soeun learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, she traveled for an hour and a half seeking treatment. Soeun needs a surgical procedure to remove the abnormal conjunctiva from the cornea surface and replace it with a conjunctival graft to prevent recurrence. The total cost of her procedure is $201. This covers medications, supplies, and inpatient care for two days.
