Dalis is a beautiful three-year-old. Her mother and father sell soft drinks from the front of their home in Prey Veng province. She is an only child not yet in school and likes to play with toys and with other children in her village. Recently she has been learning to ride a bicycle.
Soon after she was born, it was determined she had problems with her right eye. Doctors have determined she has a serious eye condition that can cause damage to the optic nerve and lead to vision loss. She experiences halos around lights, eye pain, and headaches. She needs a trabeculectomy - a surgical procedure that is often recommended for primary open-angle glaucoma.
Dalis’s family traveled to our medical partner’s care center to receive treatment. On March 3rd, surgeons at our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre (CSC), will perform a special procedure to improve her vision. Now, Dalis and her family need help to raise $298 to fund this procedure.
Her mother said: “I really hope after surgery my daughter’s eye will be better. She can go to school and see better.”

Dalis underwent surgery to save her from potential blindness.
Dalis and her parents traveled three hours for a surgery to save her sight in her right eye. Although the healing process can take several weeks or even months, her parents are relieved it should prevent further loss of vision due to her early glaucoma. Stabilizing her vision will help her when she starts school in a couple of years. The doctors look forward to seeing Dalis again soon to check on her vision.
Dalis’ mother shared, “When I brought my daughter to CSC for examination and treatment, the doctor examined and explained her eye disease so we could understand. After surgery, the doctor told me how to take care of her eye, and how to use eye drops when we go home. We are very grateful for the free care for Dalis at CSC.”
