Meet 77-year-old Phin from Cambodia. Phin is married with five sons, three daughters, and 10 grandchildren. In his free time he enjoys going to the pagoda and listening to the monks pray. Two years ago, Phin developed cataracts in both eyes.
“Phin’s cataracts cause him blurred vision and tearing,” shares our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre (CSC). “He can’t see clearly, do work well, or go anywhere outside by himself.”
For $225, CSC doctors will remove the cloudy lenses from Phin’s eyes and replace them with clear implants. The procedure takes less than an hour and will restore Phin’s vision within one day.
“I hope I will be able to see clearly so I can go places by myself without disturbing my family,” says Phin.
