Access to Ophthalmological (EYE Disease) Healthcare Services

Facts about Eye Disease in India:

In India With over 7 million, India has the largest number of blind and visually impaired people over the age of 50. Cataracts Projections show that among those aged 50+ years, the quantum of cataract surgery would double (3.38 million in 2001 to 7.63 million in 2020) and cataract surgical rate would increase from 24025/million 50+ in 2001 to 27817/million 50+ in 2020. Though the prevalence of cataract blindness would decrease, the absolute number of cataract blind would increase from 7.75 million in 2001 to 8.25 million in 2020 due to a substantial increase in the population above 50 years in India over this period. Refractive error in Adults (refractive errors, uncorrected refractive error, and presbyopia) REs are relatively common in India and the prevalence of half a dioptre or more of myopia or hyperopia in adults is 53.1%. Overall, 10.2% of adults in India were estimated to have URE. Nearly one-third of adults in the country have uncorrected presbyopia. Glaucoma, a leading cause of irreversible blindness, can be prevented or stabilized the progression if identified early and managed it appropriately. In India, around 12 million people suffer from glaucoma, and 1.5 million are blind due to it, so making the third most common cause of blindness. More than 75% of glaucoma are undiagnosed. Diabetes Retinopathy The Union Health Ministry's first National Diabetes and Diabetic Retinopathy Survey (2015-19) has revealed that the prevalence of Diabetic Retinopathy (DR) is 16.9 per cent while the prevalence of sight-threatening DR is 3.6 per cent. Refractive error in Children (Myopia, hyperopia, astigmatism) The population suffering from myopia in India in 2010 was just over 28% is expected to rise to 34% by 2020 and approximately 50% in 2050 which is a major concern. According to a study done by AIIMS, 17% children or 1 out of 6 children aged between 5-15 years are suffering from myopia. Retinopathy of Prematurity The incidence of ROP in India is reported to vary between 38 – 51.9 % in low birth weight infants.1-3 Out of the approximate 26 million annual live births in India, approximately 8.7% of newborns in India are <2000 grams in weight. This would imply that almost 2 million newborns are at risk for developing ROP. Childhood Cataract, It is found to affect 15 out of every 10,000 births in India. Childhood cataract is due to infections contracted during pregnancy, congenital defects, and also development defects. India has 2,80,000 to 3,20,000 visually impaired children, and childhood cataract accounts for nearly 14 per cent of the cases.
