Combating Cataract मोतियाबिंद and Protecting Sight
India is rated among the fastest developing countries. When it comes to health
parameters of its majority population, it is worrisome. Eyecare & eye diseases
are no different. *A study published recently by the BBC News in its health
segment quotes figures gathered from nearly 190 countries. It mentions more than
25 crore people with moderate to severe eye diseases in the world. Ninety per
cent of these eye patients live in developing countries. One-third of such
visually impaired population lives in India alone. Put simply, among every five
eye patients of the world, two live in India.
Lead causes of blindness.
Cataract is the key cause of blindness among aged
individuals of rural India. Most of these cases of pending blindness are
avoidable if given the required treatment; reveals an **India today article. Eye
diseases like Refractive errors and Glaucoma are other lead causes of blindness.
Data gathered by the well respected anti-blindness charity- ***Sightsavers,
actively working in over 30 nations reveal that there is a significant rise in
eye diseases like cataracts. मोतियाबिंद This is a condition of a hazy vision as
the eye lens gets cloudy generally with old age.
Expert Doctors needed.
The catch is that most of such eye disease cases are that
of avoidable blindness. The report calls for better eye care infrastructure,
trained staff, skilled eye surgeons and also awareness of the eye health,
especially in semi-urban, tier two and three towns,, and rural areas.
You can help stop avoidable blindness:
No person, whether rich or poor would
remotely want to be blind or a victim of preventable eye disease. But who is
going to fill in the blanks and cater to such a massive number of poor cataract
patients? Remember, most of these eye disease patients are from the low-income
group. These ignorant eye patients generally live in tier two and tier three
towns; besides in villages and remote areas. Well, there is an intense need to
an outreach, mapping such cases of eye diseases and then drive the resources to
the patients and not the other way.
Join hands to rid blindness:
Governments, Corporate houses or private sector
alone even with their best intentions won't reach everywhere. It is practically
not possible for these agencies to deliver and fight these preventable eyes
diseases. The challenge is massive. It needs a tango and handshake of the human
spirit and collective responsibility.
Donate and Spread Vision:
Each of us with a capacity to donate; should donate.
Individual sponsorships of one, two, five or ten patient treatment cost will
reduce this considerable backlog of eye disease patients. Just a handful of
willing donors from a village or small town can reverse the tide and give vision
to many of those.
Human cause for a happy world:
There is perhaps no better empowerment that the
one of giving hope and reason to live to a would-be blind. You are not saving an
individual by bearing his (eye) treatment cost but a whole family associated
with him. You are turning their despair to hope, pulling them out of the
darkness and making your community, village, and country proud with a small
donation/Sponsorship amount of few thousand rupees
We help many patients:
That is how you can make a difference, and that is
precisely how we are making a difference. Our team of ophthalmologists, eye
surgeons with their hospital networks & field staff has been at it for many
years now. We reach areas and places where others don't ask for best and
subsidised treatment of eye diseases. As on date, our surgeons have performed
over 10 thousand free/sponsored/subsidised eye disease surgeries of cataract and
associated refractive lens disorders. We have set up scores of free eye camps,
mobile clinics and even opened up doors of our hospital networks across the
state of Punjab.
Most of this is done with the active collaboration of charities, local NGO's and
individual donors. We team up all our resources, and together we give vision to
the visionless, hope to the hopeless and bring cheer to such helpless families,
who have lost it in the darkness of their poverty.
Join our noble cause. Together we bring smiles and Change lives for good.
