    Descriptive info: Ophthalmology: Blind out of misery.. It is now widely known that about 90% of blind people have lost their sight due to poverty as against the hitherto popular myth that blindness occurred as a consequence of fate.. This therefore necessitated the Swiss Red Cross getting involved in the global effort to eradicate and prevent poverty-induced blindness in some of the poorest regions of Asia and Africa.. More than 45 million of the world’s population suffer from avoidable and poverty induced blindness caused by inter alia, cataract, conjunctivitis and lack of vitamin A.. It is a sad fact to note that 80% of blind people could have been saved had there been adequate assistance, access to medical care and the necessary ophthalmic drugs and treatment.. Help that reaches people in need.. The SRC has for 25 years been committed to the prevention and eradication of poverty induced blindness  ...   and ways of preventing them or seeking help.. They also carry out visual acuity checks with the aim of referring those with defects to the health centers..

Construction and equipping of eye clinics and referral centres.. Provision of consumables and drugs.. Facilitation of treatment and surgery.. Training of local eye health specialists and volunteers.. Prevention of eye diseases through eye health education and outreaches to communities and schools.. The SRC supports the International Campaign: “Vision 2020 - The Right to Sight” of the World Health Organization and the International Agency for the Prevention of Blindness.. It is globally expected that the poorest in society should exercise their right to sight..
