Dat is a 65-year-old grandmother. Sadly, Dat’s husband passed away many years ago, and now she lives with her daughter, who is a farmer. When she is at home, she takes care of her granddaughter.
One year ago, Dat developed a cataract in her right eye, causing her itchiness, tearing, and blurry vision. She has difficulty seeing things clearly, including colors and faces. She is also worried about falling when walking, so she is not able to go places on her own.
When Dat learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, she traveled for eight hours seeking treatment. On March 2nd, 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 $229 procedure.
Dat shared, “I hope my vision improves so I can get around easily on my own.”
