Of all the life forms,human life is considered to be divine but when blindness falls upon the same human life becomes very dreadful…blindness incapacitates a person, knocks off all the confidence levels and moral values. His mere existence becomes miserable.Today it is estimated that every five seconds one person in the world goes blind. one child goes blind every minute. It is estimated that over seven million people become blind every year.
Up to 80% of cases of blindness are avoidable, either resulting from preventable conditions (20%) or being treatable (60%) so that sight is restored. prevention and treatment of vision loss are among the most cost-effective and successful of all health intervention so far.
. the causes of avoidable blindness are frequently associated with poverty and lack of access to quality eye care services. avoidable blindness is more common in the poorest of the poor, women and marginalized populations. ninety percent of the world’s blind people live in developing countries; there are at least 10 million blind people in India. People who live in the developing world like India are five to ten times more likely to go blind than people who live in highly industrialized countries.
Today more than 80% of cases can be treated successfully with proper medical help and timely intervention. when compared to the past today’s medicine has changed in leaps and bounds , when used with ever growing science they go in a long way and help to make a world, a better place to live and see.
