Our country holds the dubious distinction of being the "blind capital of the world". What's more, 75% of the blind in this country suffer from avoidable conditions that were caused due to lack of awareness and shortage of optometrists and donated eyes for the treatment of corneal blindness. What's more, affected vision is not an individual problem because it not only impacts people's personal life, but also reduces their skills and productivity. This World Sight Day, let us pledge to ensure eye-care for all.
