The magnitude of blindness is enormous. India has the largest population of the world’s blind; with over 55 million visually impaired and 8 million of them totally blind.
Every year, two million more people are added to these statistics. Fortunately, nearly 80% of them can easily be cured if only they can receive the treatment. Sadly, the majority of these people lack the knowledge and/or the funds required for the procedures.
A great portion of the population in India are children who attend school on a daily basis without the knowledge they have eye problems and/or funds to cure them.
