The burden of degenerative and non-communicable disorders have risen due to the
aging population. Access to eye care is inequitable on a global scale. The World
Health Organisation estimates that every 5 seconds, a person goes blind. The vast
majority of blinding disorders are preventable. In the last decade, there have been
numerous pharmaceutical and technological advances made to treat these disorders.
Will this be enough to bring equity to eye care?
