World Health Organisation (WHO)
The WHO estimates there are an estimated 253 million people live with vision impairment: 36 million are blind and 217 million have moderate to severe vision impairment.
Over 80% of all vision impairment can be prevented or cured [ October 2017 ]

Not everyone has equal access to eye health. 90% of the world’s visually impaired live in developing countries. Every dollar spent on improving eye health in developing countries generates a four fold return on investment [IAPB Global Action 2014 – 2019]
