World Sight Day 2017

Approximately 285 million people worldwide live with low vision and blindness. of these, 39 million people are blind and 246 million have moderate or severe visual impairment. yet 80% of visual impairment is avoidable, readily treatable and/or preventable.

Keratoconus is a degenerative disease of the cornea that causes it to gradually thin and bulge into a cone-like shape. although keratoconus does not cause total blindness. it can cause significant vision impairment and legal blindness. early detection and proper management are the keys to minimizing the visual impact of keratoconus.

October 12 is World Sight Day which is an annual awareness day that falls on the second Thursday of October. its objective is to bring attention to blindness and vision impairment.

Join us this World Sight Day and help to spread keratoconus awareness by sharing this message with your family, friends, and followers.
