Yean is a mother of five sons, and eleven grandchildren. She lives in Kandal province in Cambodia with her retired husband and their youngest son, a farmer. She enjoys going to the pagoda with villagers on holy days.
Six months ago, Yean developed a cataract in her right eye, causing her blurry vision. She shared that it is difficult to cook for the family because her vision is so bad.
When Yean learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, she traveled there hoping for treatment. On December 8th, doctors will perform a small incision cataract surgery and place an intraocular lens implant in her right eye. After recovery, she will be able to see clearly. Now, she needs help to fund this $253 procedure.
Yean said: “I hope after surgery I can see more clearly, so I can recognize faces and join ceremonies at our pagoda.”

Yean underwent cataract surgery so that she can be active again in her family and community.
Yean knew her vision was failing and she did not want to become totally dependent on others. She took the advice of her relatives and underwent cataract surgery. She was able to return home the following day with instructions to rest for a few days and use eye drops for a week. As her vision slowly improved, she was amazed at how poor her vision had been and is excited that she can recognize faces, go outside in the bright sun, and be more active.
Yean said, “I was very happy when I came to CSC for treatment because, when I arrived here, the staff were very friendly and told me everything about my eye. My surgery and medicines were free of charge. Now my eye can see everything and I want to say thank you so much.”
