Our patients: MR KHAMPOUNE CAN WORK OUTSIDE AGAIN
Mr Khampoune lives about 20 miles away from Pakse and works together with his wife and daughter as farmers on a piece of land. Since 3 years he has been seeing less through his right eye and it is becoming increasingly hard for him to endure bright sunlight, a frequently occurring condition in cataract patients, as a result of which he tends to stay inside. His other daughter is a nurse in the
Champasak hospital in Pakse. When she heard that AEC would return to Pakse for carrying out eye surgeries, she signed up her father. Yesterday, Mr Khampoune had a cataract surgery in his right eye and today he can see much better than before. This will help him enormously in doing his work, because as a farmer he has to be outside in the sunshine a lot!
