Eye cum Nutrition Camps

Location: Gujarat, Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh and Maharashtra

Period: September 2022 to March 2024

  1. Everyone, if they live long enough, will experience at least one eye condition in their lifetime that will require appropriate care. It is a common observation that the village people are found to utilize less eye care services due to various reason. Some of them are lack of awareness about the eye care, long distances and lack of transport facilities.

National Blindness and Visual Impairment Survey India (2015-19) reported that prevalence of blindness in population aged ≥ 50 years is higher among the rural than urban population. Similarly, it is higher among the people who have not gone through formal education than that of formally literate population.  Main Causes of blindness are Cataract, Refractive Error, Corneal Blindness, Glaucoma and other critical disorders.

Some common Eye problems among Indians are eye strain, refractive errors, Dry Eye Syndrome, Night blindness, Conjunctivitis.[1] There are enough evidences that timely intervention helps in prevention of blindness.

  1. National Family Health Survey-5 (2019-21), In India 57.2% of non-pregnant women, 52.2% of pregnant women and 67.1% of children were found to be anaemic. [2] Anaemia doubles the risk of death during pregnancy and leads to poor motor and mental growth in children.

To create awareness about eye care, timely diagnosis of eye problems, measure nutritional status (Body Mass Index) and blood haemoglobin level CHETNA is organizing eye camps in the rural area of Gujarat, Rajasthan, Maharashtra and Madhya Pradesh.

Objectives:

  • To create awareness about eye care and early diagnosis of eye problems, treat and refer them for further treatment if required.
  • To estimate the level of blood haemoglobin and measure their Body Mass Index, and refer the anaemic people to the nearest health facility for treatment.

Reach: It is estimated that 30 blocks of 180 villages and more than 30000 people will be benefited from this project.
