“Of all the senses, sight must be the most delightful.”
Helen Keller said many years back, wondering how it must be - to see.
Since then, ophthalmic science has made some spectacular progress, and we have managed to find treatments for many of the ailments that went untreated those days.
Unfortunately, in spite of that advancement, there are areas in the world where people are still going blind, with no availability to even basic retinal care.
Diseases such as diabetic retinopathy, macular degeneration, retinopathy of prematurity, retinal afflictions of uveitis, etc. are increasingly being seen in such areas, which potentially may be due to better awareness and some amount of available diagnostic methods, but it is also likely to be due to increasing prevalence of these disorders around the world.
This is where RETINA GLOBAL steps in.
So how can we help such people?
RETINA GLOBAL is focused on outreach programs to such identified areas, with participation from volunteer retina specialists from around the world, who will provide their time and expertise, to help make a difference.
Retina Global is registered with the Secretary of State, California, USA, as a nonprofit corporation, and is a 501(c)(3) approved organization.
To provide sustainable solutions to the increasing number of people around the world afflicted with retinal diseases.
We envision everyone with adequate access to retinal expertise.
