Sean is a 69-year-old rice farmer who lives with his wife; they have one daughter and one grandchild. Due to his age, he no longer farms in the rice field, he stays at home and looks after his grandchild. He also likes to listen to monks preaching on the radio.
Three years ago, Sean developed a cataract in his left eye, causing him photophobia, blurry vision, and poor night vision. He has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Sean learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, he traveled for four and a half hours with his daughter seeking treatment. On February 17th, doctors will perform a small incision cataract surgery and an intraocular lens implant in his left eye. After recovery, he will be able to see clearly. Now, he needs help to fund this $229 procedure.
“I’m hoping I will be able to see well. I want to be able to drive my motorbike and look after my wife and my grandchild,” Sean said.
