There are approximately 180 million blind or visually disabled people around the world with more than 90% in developing countries in places such as Africa there is only one ophthalmologist for every 1.25 million people. Fortunately, 80% of blindness can be prevented or cured.
In the United States, people with diabetes are about 25 times more likely to become blind and 3.4 million of people over 40 are blind or visually impaired. One in three Americans over 65 has an eye disease that causes visual impairment. Glaucoma is among the leading causes of blindness in the United States. About half of the people with glaucoma don’t know they have it because there are usually no early warning symptoms. For this reason, it is important to have regular eye exams to detect problems when they are easier to treat.
