According to the World Health Organization (WHO), World Report on Vision (October 2019), globally 2.2 billion people have some kind of visual impairment or blindness and 1 billion of them could have been addressed or prevented. Everyone if they live long will experience some kind of ocular problem in their lifetime and will need an appropriate treatment option for the same.
