Man is a 41-year-old woman with one daughter, one son, and an adorable grandchild. Man’s husband works as a laborer and, since her vision declined, Man stays home to care for her grandchild.
Two years ago, Man developed a cataract in her left eye, causing her itchiness, tearing, and blurry vision. Consequently, she has difficulty seeing things clearly, including colors and faces, and is worried about falling when walking, so she cannot go places on her own.
When Man learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre (CSC), she traveled for four and a half hours seeking treatment. On September 28th, doctors will perform cataract surgery and an intraocular lens implant in her left eye. After recovery, she will be able to see clearly. CSC is requesting $253 to help fund this procedure.
Man shared, “After surgery, I hope my eye will feel comfortable enough that I can help my daughter care for her child and go outside by myself.”
