Avoidable loss of vision in a global perspective
WHO estimates that in 2010 there were 39 million blind people and 246 million living with moderate to severe vision impairment globally. 90% of the disease burden is found in developing countries, and most of it is due to preventable or treatable eye conditions. Many of these, such as uncor­­­rected refractive errors, can be prevented with the integration of simple primary health measures. However, as a result of an ageing population, the prevalence of chronic diseases such as diabetic retinopathy and age-related macular de­generation is on the rise. This calls for more focus on spe­cialized treatment.
