Blindness is one of the biggest problems in developing countries. According to the World Health Organization, corneal diseases (Damage to the tissue covering the front of the eye called cornea) are among the major causes of vision loss and blindness, after cataract and glaucoma.
India has nearly 2-3 million corneal blinds which could be cured only with eye donation. But the rate of eye donation is too less for the huge demand. Most of the blinds are young which were caused due to injuries, infections, deficiency, malnutrition or other factors. Their eyesight can be restored only through corneal transplantation.
Every year there are millions of people who wait for corneal transplant but only few thousands can hope for undergoing transplant. Eye donation is a noble cause , your eye can give vision gift to two blinds. This can encourage more people to donate to selfless cause. It costs nothing to donor but for the one who receive the gift of sight it means everything.
Pledge to donate your eye today at Abhishek Nethradhama
