Vision loss and blindness ~By Blaine and Jessica

Facts

Somewhere in the world, someone goes blind every few seconds.

80% of all blindness is preventable or curable.

Rates of blindness will double by the year 2020 unless prevention efforts are greater than they are now

It is estimated that at least 7 million people go blind every year.

Africa averages just one ophthalmologist for every 1.25 million people.
