Health and hygiene are the two most integral elements for the overall well being of people and must not be ignored at any cost. There is a lack of understanding about the need for hygiene and sanitation and a general awareness about the best ways to improve this.

Free Eye Checkup Camp- Rajpura

“The Eye – The most important sensory organ and window of the soul”.

The World Health Organization estimates that up to 80% of blindness and serious visual loss around the world is avoidable through prevention or treatment.

Having our eyes tested for vision and general eye health can help identify problems early and prevent loss of eyesight.

Key Facts from WHO-

  • About distance vision, 188.5 million people have mild vision impairment, 217 million have moderate to severe vision impairment, and 36 million people are blind. With regards to near vision, 826 million people live with a near vision impairment.
