Welcome Dr Tharath

Dr Ny Tharath is a Cambodian Ophthalmologist who completed his Glaucoma Fellowship at the end of 2018. The skills and knowledge gained by Dr Tharath through Sight For All’s Glaucoma Fellowship means that Dr Tharath can treat patients just like Yean Sen. Yean, 68, was blind in her left eye from acute angle closure glaucoma. She had a cataract in her right eye and could only see up to three metres away. Yean was also experiencing a lot of pain. She travelled 200km from her home to receive emergency treatment by Dr Tharath.
Dr Tharath was able to provide eye drops to Yean to reduce the pain. He conducted laser therapy to treat her glaucoma and the following week removed her cataract. Yean returned home with a smile.
Dr Tharath said he is able to treat those with glaucoma thanks to the training and equipment he has received from Sight For All.
“I am very proud to be a glaucoma specialist trained by Sight For All”.
Dr Tharath is increasing his knowledge in Glaucoma over the coming four weeks as he visits Australia to attend the World Glaucoma Congress and undertakes an intensive Glaucoma Observership at the Royal Adelaide Hospital.
