Chomrong is a 48-year-old tractor driver who is married with one son and three daughters. Two of his daughters are married and his other two children are students. Unfortunately, Chomrong is unable to work right now because of his poor vision. At home, he enjoys listening to news on the radio.
Three years ago, Chomrong developed a cataract in his left eye, causing him sensitivity to light and blurry vision. He has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Chomrong learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, he traveled across the country for eight hours seeking treatment. On August 19th, doctors will perform a small incision cataract surgery and an intraocular lens implant in his left eye. After recovery, he will be able to see clearly. Now, he needs help to fund this $229 procedure.
Chomrong shared, “I hope my eye can see clearly like before. Then I can work full time again to support my life and my children’s schooling.”

Chomrong underwent cataract surgery so he can get back to work.
Chomrong traveled for many hours across difficult roads to reach our medical partner’s care center for his cataract surgery. His vision had been declining for several years and had prevented him from working. After this surgery, Chomrong’s vision improved significantly! He is able to see much better, can recognize faces, and will become more independent. He will be able to drive again and earn money to feed and support his family.
Chomrong’s wife said, “We are grateful to all who supported Chomrong’s surgery so that he can return to work. I don’t have to worry anymore that he cannot see well. He is much happier and it is a relief for our family.”
