TREATING AND PREVENTING CORNEAL BLINDNESS
Blindness is a blight on the human race and has many causes. The sad truth is that many of these causes are easily preventable and treatable. In third world and developing countries blindness means exclusion. No access to education, no possibility of work and impoverished families often have to cast family members out – they are another mouth to feed and cannot contribute. This suffering is unnecessary and impacts upon the growth and stability of many nations.Thousands of people are obstructed from becoming valuable, contributing members of society.
