Thuon is a 43-year-old garment worker who enjoys listening to the news on the radio. He is married and has one daughter, who is currently attending school. His wife works as a cleaner in a restaurant to support their family. Due to his failing vision, Thuon has been unable to work for the past few years.
Three years ago, Thuon developed a cataract in his right eye, causing him to experience light sensitivity and blurry vision. He has difficulty seeing things clearly, including colors and faces, and is worried about falling when walking, so he is not able to go places on his own.
When Thuon learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, he traveled for three and a half hours seeking treatment. On August 11th, doctors will perform a small incision cataract surgery and place an intraocular lens implant in his right eye. After recovery, he will be able to see clearly. Now, he needs help to fund this $253 procedure.
Thuon says, “I hope after surgery my eye can see better and I can go back to work to support my family.”

Thuon underwent cataract surgery so he can see clearly again.
Thuon had a happy life with his family, but was disappointed because his vision had deteriorated and he could no longer work in the garment factory. He took the advice of his neighbors and traveled to nearby hospital for surgery. He rested at home for several days after surgery and even applied eye drops eight times daily to help his eyes heal faster. After his vision stabilized, he has been able to go outside in bright or dim light without fear of falling. The cataract surgery will not only improve his life but also will allow him to return to work at the garment factory to support his family.
Thuon said: “I am so lucky to know about CSC so my cataract could be cured and I can continue working at the factory to support my family. Thank you to the people who paid for my surgery and to the staff who were so kind to me.”
