Oeun is a 68-year-old rice farmer from Cambodia. He has three grandchildren and enjoys listening to the radio and reading scripts from the pagoda.
Five months ago, Oeun developed a cataract in each eye, causing him blurry vision and irritation. He has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Oeun learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, he traveled for four hours seeking treatment. On March 6, doctors will perform a phacoemulsification surgery and an intraocular lens implant in each eye. After recovery, he will be able to see clearly. Now, he needs help to fund this $398 procedure.
He says, “I hope that after my surgery, I am able to go back to work on the rice farm and go outside independently.”
