THE STORY:

A cataract is a clouding of the lens in the eye that affects vision, 51% of the world’s blindness is caused by cataract. Cataract is the leading cause of blindness in the world, yet also very preventable. Of the 53.8 million people suffering from cataract, 52.2 million live in low to middle income countries. In many cases, cataracts goes untreated in low income countries. This is due to a variety of reasons including inadequate surgical services, lack of information, transportation problems and financial reasons.
