Did You Know?
Blindness is one of the major public health problems in developing countries. According to WHO, corneal diseases are among the major causes of vision loss and blindness, after cataract and glaucoma.
In most cases, loss of sight can be corrected through 'Eye Donation" After the death of a person, various organs can be donated and can be surgically transplanted to the patients who need them. One such organ is the eye . By donating eyes after death, a corneal blind person can see again through a surgical procedure known as corneal transplantation, where by the damaged cornea is replaced by a healthy cornea from the eye donor.
The National Eye Donation Fortnight is a campaign which aims to create mass public awareness about the importance of eye donation.
Join us for an awareness session on Eye Donation, this Weekend.
