There are 2.2 billion people globally who are visually impaired.
50% of this visual impairment is either preventable or curable.
9 out of 10 of the world’s blind people live in developing countries. In India, this happens to be 9 million blind people.
Vision Foundation of India is on a mission of eradicating curable blindness from even the most
poverty stricken areas of India. We aim at surgically treating of 1.1 million patients by year 2028.
