  • (1888PressRelease) October 11, 2013 - According to latest WHO estimates, 285 million people are estimated to be visually impaired worldwide. If this number seems shocking, what follows is more appalling. 80% of all visual impairment can be avoided or cured! That means, about 228 million people live in a world of visual impairment for no reason!

    Why do such large numbers suffer from visual impairment when it can easily be avoided? Apart from poor access to eye care facilities, a large number of people are unaware of the need for eye care. Refractive errors (near sightedness, far sightedness and cylinder powers) are the most common cause accounting for 43% of visual impairment. Un-operated Cataract causes loss of vision in 33% of the people. These two eye problems along with Glaucoma (raised eye pressure); form the three most common causes of visual impairment in the world. The good news is that timely detection and treatment can help control visual loss due to these diseases.

    Advanced Eye Hospital and Institute (AEHI) aims to create awareness about the necessity of timely eye check-up by offering a free eye check-up on the occasion of World Sight Day.
