REPUBLICAN CENTER FOR HEALTH DEVELOPMENT

The event date is unique for each year. This year, this date comes on October 8.

World vision day is celebrated on the second Thursday of October on the initiative of the world health organization (who).

This date is marked in the calendar to attract global attention to the problems of blindness, visual impairment and rehabilitation of people with visual impairment. Various organizations related to this issue participate in the world vision day. This day is also the main event of the global initiative for the prevention of blindness "Vision 2020: the right to vision", created by WHO and the International Agency for the prevention of blindness.

Blindness is the inability to see. The leading causes of chronic blindness include cataracts, glaucoma, age-related macular degeneration, corneal opacities, trachoma, and eye diseases in children (such as those caused by vitamin A deficiency). Age-related blindness, as well as blindness caused by uncontrolled diabetes, is increasingly common in the world.

According to the International Agency for the prevention of blindness, approximately 253 million people have vision problems, 36 million of them do not see at all, and 217 million people have moderate or severe visual impairment. Eye diseases affect more than 19 million children. However, 80% of cases of blindness could be avoided if treated in a timely manner.

In addition, do not forget about measures to prevent eye diseases. So, doctors advise to give up Smoking, because nicotine has a detrimental effect on vision; regularly use products that strengthen the vessels of the retina: blueberries, black currants, carrots, cod liver, greens; spend less time in front of the TV and playing electronic games; and when working at the computer, use a modern monitor and high-quality programs.
