A total of 135 million people around the world are visually impaired, with 85 million individuals being completely blind. Of those suffering from blindness, 80% of the world’s cases are caused by clouding introduced by cataracts. Cataracts occur naturally as people age, and can be only be cured through surgery. Fortunately, this surgery is one of the fastest, cheapest and most reliably successful operations in the history of medicine. Thus, with sufficient healthcare delivery systems, we have the power to cure 80% of the world’s blindness. Sadly, in the Indian state of Odisha, this hope appears to be far from a reality. Only the coastal regions of Odisha have any significant health infrastructure, and rampant poverty along with a lack of awareness has perpetuated the unfortunate circumstances in central regions of the state. Thousands are suffering needlessly due to an easily correctable condition luckily, we do have the power to help.
