Not only you can light the life of someone else, but the eyes that you donate can also benefit in the research and education in this field. Research into glaucoma, retinal diseases, complications due to diabetes and many other research activities are performed on the donated eyes.
Other than these, there are a few more compelling reasons why you need to donate your eyes and these include:
1.5% of the population are unnecessarily blind
25% live below the poverty line
2.5 million children are suffering, including those who don’t have the correct spectacles
32% are under 15
60% of blind children will not make it to adulthood. A cumulative economic loss to India’s GNP of US$11.1 billion
75% live in rural areas
There are 12,000 ophthalmologists in the country but the majorities of them live and work in the urban areas
40% live in rural areas in central & northern India where there is little access to quality eye care services
