About Us

EyeMantra  Foundation

EyeMantra Foundation in India

Did you know that 80% of all visual impairment is preventable or curable? In spite of that, there are millions of people in India and the rest of the world who are living compromised lives because of visual impairment that can be prevented or cured. Did you know that 50% of the world’s blind population lives in India? Out of this, 20% are blind because of uncorrected refractive errors. The lack of access to primary eye care results in lifelong blindness which can be corrected with the right healthcare. Without the finances or the access to eye care resources, millions of people continue to flail in the dark for want of something as simple as a pair of spectacles.

Impact of Uncorrected Poor Vision

Did you know that uncorrected poor vision is the most common disability in the world? Or that 90% of people with poor vision live in developing countries? That 1 in 3 people may spend their lives not being able to see clearly even though it can be easily corrected? The World Health Organisation states that 80% of visual impairment is preventable or curable. Good eyesight not only improves daily living but also increases the chances of a better future. When children are able to see better, they do better in school, resulting in increased employability which benefits the entire family and community. Not only is the world a safer place but it is also a happier place when people can see clearly.
