School Screening Camps:
According to various studies, School children form an important large target group which must be screened adequately for early detection of eye diseases and prevention of blindness. Considering the fact that 30% of India's blind lose their sight before the age of 20 years and many of them are under five when they become blind, the importance of early detection and treatment of ocular diseases and visual impairment in young children is obvious. Vision problems affect one in 20 preschoolers and one in four school age children.
During a child's first 12 years, 80 percent of all learning comes through vision. And yet most children have not had a comprehensive eye exam prior to starting school. Majority of students identified as problem learners have undetected vision problems.
Mugavari Eye Hospital & Research Institute, organize “Free Eye Screening camp” for school students. In the camps, all the students will be made to undergo a comprehensive eye examination and further clinical procedures, if any required.
