Nhoeng underwent cataract surgery so she can see clearly again.
For several years, Nhoeng was unable to go outside on her own or help around the house because her vision had deteriorated. After undergoing successful surgery, Nhoeng is happy to report that her vision has already improved! She returned home with her niece to rest and apply eye drops to continue her healing. The cataract surgery will improve her life because she can be more independent and help her family again. Nhoeng also looks forward to visiting her neighbors.
Nhoeng’s niece said, “My aunt was very unhappy when she could not help in the house or visit the pagoda because she could not see to travel alone. I am relieved she can have her life back and do the things she likes to do. Thank you to the kindness of strangers who paid for her treatment.”

Nhoeng is a 75-year-old retired rice farmer. She currently lives with her niece, since her husband unfortunately passed away. She enjoys spending her time listening to monks pray.
Four years ago, Nhoeng developed a cataract in her right eye, causing her to experience light sensitivity, eye tearing, and blurry vision. She has difficulty seeing things clearly, including colors and faces, and is worried about falling when walking, so she is not able to go places on her own.
When Nhoeng learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, she traveled for four and a half hours seeking treatment. On July 6th, doctors will perform a small incision cataract surgery and 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.
Nhoeng says, “I hope I will see well again so I can go places on my own and see things.”
