However, most of them are over 50 years of age and are not receiving treatment, so vision impairment can occur at any age, even in children.

The leading causes of visual impairment and blindness are uncorrected refractive errors and cataracts, while the financial cost is also a major cause of visual impairment, with the annual global cost of productivity losses being a major burden due to uncorrected myopia and According to this latest report by “Al-Mustafa Welfare Trust”, out of 1,73,000 eye surgeries, 132,411 were performed in Pakistan, 2,137 in Gaza Palestine, 2,137 in Bangladesh.

Currently, approximately 26.3 million people across Africa are visually impaired. An estimated 15.3% of the world’s blind population lives in Africa. That is, one in three Africans, or 422 million people, live below the global poverty line, which makes their situation even more difficult. A treatable condition can go untreated for years, leading to complete and debilitating blindness. In some communities in Africa, myths, and preconceived notions about using hospitals and being treated by doctors can prevent people from getting the support they need, and women in particular. Al Mustafa Welfare Trust is also working to educate and empower communities and dispel myths that can have a devastating impact on human life. Provide cataract surgery to those most in need.

Every year on the second Thursday of October, World Sight Day is celebrated around the world on World Sight Day. 39 million people are blind and 285 million are visually impaired. For us, World Sight Day is also a day of celebration to mark how far we have come together in curing blindness and restoring sight. At Al Mustafa Welfare Trust, we are delighted to have reached this great milestone of over 173,184 cataract surgeries. This means we’ve helped more than 173,184 people restore and save their sight, while helping hundreds and thousands more with glasses and support services. Together we are working to transform lives in remote communities, advocate for the rights of the visually impaired and disabled, and help communities thrive.

What exactly are cataracts? Cataracts are cloudy spots on the retina of the eye that begin to narrow. Cataracts usually get worse over time and can occur in one or both eyes. Symptoms may include sensitivity to light and glare, blurred or blurred vision, difficulty seeing at night, needing light to read, seeing ‘halos’ around lights, blurred or yellow colours, and double vision. Cataracts can lead to blindness if left untreated, some causes of cataracts are poor nutrition, dirty water and poor hygiene conditions dirty sand that hits the eye. Aging, poverty and lack of health facilities can also be a major reason.
