The Gift of Sight

Cataract remains the leading cause of blindness worldwide, accounting for nearly half (47.8 per cent or 17.7 million) of the cases. The treatment is surgical, a highly cost-effective intervention. Almost one in five people between the ages of 65 and 74 develop cataracts severe enough to reduce vision, and almost one in two people older than 75 years have this disease. A Global Action Plan 2014-2019 had been launched by the WHO following a resolution passed by the World Health Assembly in 2013. This global action plan identified cataract surgical rate as one of the three global monitoring indicators.rn

rnPakistan is the sixth most populous country in the world with a population exceeding 207 million. Still a developing country, Pakistan is listed in the category of *low-middle* income country according to World Bank income classification 2018. In Pakistan 80% of reversible blindness is caused by cataract and there are estimated to be 570,000 adults (225,000 men, 345,000 women) who are blind due to cataract, which is the most common cause (51.5%) of avoidable blindness in the country. The only treatment that provides a cure for cataracts is surgery.

It is planned that 5000 numbers of Free Cataract surgeries will be conducted for underserved population.
