Bengaluru (Karnataka) [India], November 10 (ANI/PNN): Alcon, the global leader in eye care dedicated to helping people see brilliantly. Today on World Sight Day, Alcon India supported Bangalore-based NGOs by organising vision screening camps and providing spectacles to children who needed vision corrections. The partnered NGOs were Jeevitha Anathshrama, which shelters 30 children, and Sneh Ghar, which has close to 100 children in their facility. Children were screened for eye conditions, and those in need were provided with eyesight correction aids per their prescriptions. Alcon has committed to delivering 150, 000 vision screenings in order to children plus comprehensive care for those within need simply by 2025. Alcon India’s screening is a small step in achieving this goal.
Jeevitha Anathshrama is the community orphanage for both boys and girls. It is currently home to over 30 kids aged 6 -16 years. The children at this orphanage took part in the screening camp and actively participated in a magic show. Sneh Ghar orphanage provides care to abandoned children by protecting their own rights in line with UNCRC. The particular children here heartily welcomed all the volunteers plus shared their particular dreams and aspirations.
Globally, at least 450 million kids have an eyesight condition that needs treatment1 Children along with vision impairments often struggle in school, and they may experience low self-esteem plus limited socio-economic opportunities in the future2 When compared to children living under parental care, and kids living within underprivileged circumstances, are at a higher risk of developing ocular diseases3
On occasion, Amar Vyas, Indian Surgical Franchise Head and Country Manager at Alcon India said, “As the leading company in attention care, we believe everyone should have equal access to eyesight care. Identifying the visual condition inside children plus prescribing corrective spectacles will make a huge difference in the child’s experience of the world. It will benefit the child’s performance in college, hence ensuring a better future” Speaking upon World View Day, he added, “On this day, all of us pledge to Love Your Eyes. A large part associated with our perception and knowledge is through vision. Timely eye check-ups can prevent multiple issues to our eyesight and life experiences. ”
Regardless of age, gender, or financial status, every child has the right to good eyesight. Screening kids with regard to visual impairments and early corrections can largely impact their learning. It offers been observed that wearing glasses reduces the chances of a kid failing in class simply by 44 per cent. 4 Visual health plays a vital role in a child’s academic performance. Those kids who can view the particular blackboard clearly, often perform better academically. A person’s eyesight directly impacts their quality of existence. 5
