Increasing Awareness of Vision Care Offers Ample Opportunities for Market

In recent years, various measures and efforts have been taken to create awareness and educate people regarding eye diseases, prompting patients to access suitable medications and treatments for such conditions. In 2017, the National Eye Institute (NEI) in the US initiated “Write the Vision,” a new eye health awareness program, specifically for African-American consumers. Write the Vision offers monthly resources to a large number of organizations, allowing them to promote healthy vision, and prevent vision loss and blindness in the communities they serve. Per the National Eye Health Education Program, a part of the NEI, African-Americans are more prone to eye diseases. It can further lead to loss of vision, if not treated in time. Hence, the Write the Vision program was launched to increase awareness about eye health.

Sightsavers—an international nongovernmental organization—works in developing countries to treat and prevent eye diseases. A large population in India resides in rural areas, having limited or no awareness of eye ailments. Sightsavers aims to create awareness with its Rural Eye Health Programme, provide high-quality eye health services, and eradicate avoidable blindness in the rural population. In addition, the WHO launched the Universal Health Coverage and Eye Care: Promoting Country Action, an event to provide practical, step-by-step, guidance to support Member States of the WHO in planning and implementing the recommendations of the WHO’s World report on vision. The WHO launched this event with the goal to provide integrated people-centered eye care services. Thus, the rising number of such eye health awareness programs is creating growth opportunities for the vision care market.
