Traumatic cataract

January 5, 2023

Piseth is a congenial eight-year-old boy who came to CSC with a traumatic cataract from a slingshot accident two years ago. He suffered from blurry vision and was unable to read books, attend school or walk outside without fear of falling due to poor vision. After a lensectomy and a new lens, he has returned to school and would like to be a doctor when he grows up.
