Oun is a 47-year-old grandmother who is married with two daughters, one son, and two grandchildren. She and her husband both work in construction. At home, Oun likes to cook for her family and play with her grandchildren.
Last year, Oun developed a cataract in her right eye, causing her to experience blurry vision and have difficulty seeing in bright or low lighting. She has difficulty seeing things clearly, including colors and faces, and is worried about falling when walking, so she cannot go out independently.
When Oun learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre (CSC), she traveled for three and a half hours seeking treatment. On October 5th, doctors will perform a phacoemulsification cataract surgery and an intraocular lens implant in her right eye. After recovery, she will be able to see clearly. CSC is requesting $253 to fund this procedure.
Oun said: “I hope, after surgery, I can see clearly, return to work, and take care of my daughter.”
